There are numerous opportunities for faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates to be involved in a variety of research projects and collaborations.
Multidisciplinary research is essential to understanding the interconnected and complex issues we face today. Our researchers work together, from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, and both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in these collaborations.
The Canada Research Chairs and Endowed Chairs help to attract and retain some of the world’s most accomplished and promising minds. These chairholders aim to achieve research excellence and to train the next generation of skilled researchers.
