If you are interested in working with the waterSHED Lab on topics including alpine geomorphology or geohazards as a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow, familiarize yourself with our research and get in touch with Dr Dan Shugar by email. Include your CV and unofficial transcripts and a brief explanation of your research interests. I am open to inquires from students from a variety of backgrounds, including geoscience, physical geography, geophysics, etc, but can only consider students whose research interests align with my own. Get in touch as early as possible: For Canadian applicants and permanent residents, note that NSERC funding applications for graduate scholarships have to be submitted in the autumn of the year before you plan to start your studies.
