Our international research team has high ethical standards and a strong commitment to science.

Honors thesis (BSc)

Undergraduate honors thesis students are accepted after volunteering for at least 1 semester in our lab. The topic will be assigned according to research funding availability and strictly followed to ensure project and student success.

Graduate Students (Ph.D. and MSc)

Currently, we can accept only students that qualify for Memorial University School of Graduate Students support (GPA 3.6 or above) and bring their own external support (e.g. national fellowships, NSERC, CONACYT, CONICYT, VIED, etc). Our mentoring philosophy is based on critical thinking, academic competition (denoted by published articles), and collaborative teamwork. Every member of the team is requested to give frequent oral presentations of current research articles and their own research in a friendly environment. Strong work commitment is required.
