Opportunities

There are several opportunities to join the laboratory for highly motivated candidates.

We recruit graduate students (MSc or PhD) and post-doctoral fellows with backgrounds in either biology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, bio-informatics, neurosciences, chemistry, physics, or engineering.

We also recruit undergraduate students (enrolled in life or physical sciences or in engineering) every summer or during the school terms.

Possible Graduate Programs at Université Laval for MSc and PhD students enrolled in my lab are:

Biophotonics: Université Laval offers the first and only graduate Programs (MSc and PhD) in Biophotonics in Canada (www.biophotonics.ulaval.ca). The programs train students with undergraduate backgrounds in either Life sciences, physics, chemistry, or engineering. All trainees in the Program are co-supervised by mentors from both the Life Sciences and the Physical Sciences/Engineering. Several trainees in the lab are enrolled in the Biophotonics Training Program.

Neuroscience: Université Laval offers MSc and PhD programs in neuroscience, covering fundamental and clinical research on the nervous system. The program offers a vast array of courses in cellular, molecular, systems and clinical neurosciences.

Biochemistry:  Université Laval offers MSc and PhD in Biochemistry, covering a wide range of topics, such as structure/function of proteins, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bio-informatics, biophysics, and cell biology and physiology.
