If you are interested in joining our lab group, please email me to introduce yourself. It would be most helpful if you could outline how your research interests overlap with mine and describe what you would be interested in working on during your time at McGill. Please also include your CV. Note that being able to provide some of your own funding will be a strong advantage for being accepted to the lab. Below I provide some information about the application process at McGill and some potential funding sources. Some of the benefits of work in my lab include the potential for collaboration with a truly excellent and interactive group of people at both the Redpath Museum and Biology Department, a well developed research program, field work in amazing locations (e.g., here, here and here), and living in Montreal, which is an awesome city!

There are also many options for McGill undergraduate students to earn academic credits while doing research. Depending on your schedule, there are 1-, 3-, 6-, and 9-credit research course options. These can be undertaken by students in the Faculty of Science, Honours, Liberal or Joint programs, as well as students from the Faculty of Arts doing a Minor in Science. There is also the honours project option for committed students. For more information, please see: http://biology.mcgill.ca/undergrad/res_opps.html
Finally, a little advice…
Prof. Scott Keogh has compiled an excellent list of resources and advice for students and postdoctoral fellows here.
