Join Us

Working with the Biomathematics and Fluids Group gives you the opportunity to expand your familiarity with biology and fluids while building your skill-set in mathematics and computation. With the range of expertise available in our group, we offer a wide scope of possibilities and options in research.

We actively seek highly qualified personnel to conduct research with us. These include Master’s students, PhD candidates, and Post Doctoral Fellows. We also supervise students with good academic standing in a Bachelor’s program who are interested in undergraduate research postions or internships.
 

What are the Minimum Requirements?

Enrolment in or completion of a mathematics degree is not mandatory, neither is a biology or chemistry background. We often work with students who come from various backgrounds, such as physics, engineering, or computer science. However, a foundation in the sciences and solid math skills are minimum requirements. Programming skills are also beneficial.
In addition to academic background, our most successful candidates are self-motivated independent thinkers, with a strong curiosity to probe for answers to complex problems.
 

What are the Benefits?

The advantage of working with our group is the breadth of options available. The mathematical skills you develop are highly transferable, not only within biology and health research, but to a wide range of applications, roles, and industries, such as pharmaceuticals, finance, data analytics, industrial manufacturing, academia, and more. You can easily create your own path, both within our group and beyond, after completing your training with our group.  

"I had the amazing opportunity to learn new things and to customize my research to match my skill set and career goals. My supervisors are outstanding and very approachable."

Dexter Barrows, PhD student

What Kind of Experience can Members Expect?

Joining our group provides the opportunity to interact with other highly-qualified personnel and to work closely with a supervising professor. We offer a friendly and supportive learning environment with regular group and private meetings as well as personalized guidance on your research.
We emphasize student choice and work closely with candidates to find a research topic that you can persevere at for an extended period. Whether you prefer computational or theoretical work, we can tailor a project to match your interests and goals.
