Memorial University’s Department of Biology is home to over 100 graduate students along with 30 full-time faculty members and numerous cross-appointment faculty from other academic departments. Approximately 20 researchers from outside Memorial University, many employed in government laboratories (agriculture, fisheries, forestry, and wildlife), hold adjunct appointments with the Department and contribute to the graduate program as co-supervisors and supervisory committee members.
Biology is also part of the interdisciplinary Cognitive and Behavioural Ecology (CABE) program, which offers both the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Interested students should apply directly to the CABE program.
Graduate applicants interested in research-based programs are strongly encouraged to find a faculty supervisor at the time of application. Visit the Department of Biology website for a list of faculty members, their research interests, and contact information. You may also use the Yaffle search engine to find a supervisor you may wish to work with.
