Prospective Graduate Students

So you think you might want to be a graduate student in our lab. Here are some things that need to be considered.

  1. I am an e-mail "junkie" and that is the best way to communicate. Except for during the summer when I am away a lot in the field, I typically respond quickly.
  2. Unfortunately money is always a constraining factor. If you have a scholarship etc., you are obviously much more attractive BUT if this is not the case, by no means is all lost! My research is supported by NSERC funds but those are limited.
  3. Your grades must be good but experience and enthusiasm are just, if not, more important.
  4. Obviously you must be able to cope with Regina winters which are cool to be sure.
  5. I don't consider grad. school as an option for those who do not know what else to do. It is hard work that requires high levels of commitment and self-motivation.
  6. If you are still interested, send a CV and a letter/e-mail outlining why you want to be a grad student. I would appreciate any ideas you have on what sort of a project you would like to do and the names (e-mail addresses) of a couple of faculty members who are familiar with your work.
