Research Opportunities for Current UAlberta Undergraduate Students
I encourage UAlberta undergraduate students interested in structural engineering research to contact me at email@example.com to discuss opportunities and projects. Two common ways for undergrads to get involved with research are:
Dean’s Research Award (DRA): One (fall or winter) or two term (fall and winter) DRA awards are available. Students work for ~4 hours a week on a small research project. See link for description, eligibility, and deadlines. DRA topics are posted here at the start of each term but students may also propose their own research topics.
NSERC Undergraduate Summer Research Award (USRA): 16 week summer term research award. Students work on a project, typically alongside a graduate student See link for description, eligibility, and deadlines. USRA topics typically align with current research projects.
Note that these are not the only sources of undergraduate research support. If you have another source in mind and wish to discuss research further let me know.
Prospective MSc or PhD Students – Currently at UAlberta or in the Edmonton Area
Prospective MSc or PhD students currently at the University of Alberta, living in the Edmonton area, or will be visiting the Edmonton area are encouraged to set up a meeting with me via email to discuss possible research opportunities.
Before contacting me, please take a look at some of my current projects and research interests and check program requirements at www.ualberta.ca/graduate-studies/prospective-students/apply-for-admission/index.html
Prospective MSc or PhD Students – Currently outside of the Edmonton Area
Prospective MSc or PhD students unable to meet me in person are required to send the following material as a single PDF file to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line “Prospective <degree> Student – <last name, first name>”.
Applications that follow the above rules are considered but available positions are limited. If you followed these rules but did not receive a response then I am not recruiting at the time of application.
Applications clearly sent to many professors (do not include the name of the school, do not include my name, or have unaligned research interests) are not considered and unlikely to receive a reply.
