I am looking for enthusiastic and talented Graduate students (MASc (Canadian) and PhD (Canadian or international)) in the areas of: 

  • Experimental studies on nuclear materials, especially ion irradiation.  This could include (thermo)mechanical properties, materials characterisation.

There may also be opportunities in: (thermo)mechanical testing; thermomechanical processing; materials modelling; solid mechanics; finite element modelling; materials characterisation; electron microscopy. Students with a background in materials engineering, materials science or physics would be ideal, but get in touch if you are interested. 

I also have opportunities for undergraduate summer placements, or thesis projects.
