Due to a high volume of applicants, it is possible that not all applicants will receive a response following initial evaluation of the applications.

Undergraduate Researcher Applicants

Undergraduates interested in learning about and undertaking research using ultrafast optics and scanning tunnelling microscopy to study electronic and magnetic dynamics are invited to contact Dr. Burgess. Positions are available starting in Summer 2018.

Interested undergraduates are encouraged to apply for an NSERC , or a Faculty of Science Undergraduate Student Research Award . The application process is handled through the Department of Physics.

Students should contact the Department of Physics to determine eligibility and to proceed with the application. The competition for Undergraduate Summer Awards for 2018 is not yet open. It will open sometime this fall. The departmental deadline will likely be in early January 2018.
