In the Hood Lab we are strong believers in the training of "highly qualified personnel" at all levels of education. At the undergraduate level, we usually take on one or two Summer NSERC or CIHR students each year, and we make use of many student volunteers throughout the school year who help us around the lab, and who become familiar with a laboratory setting. We take MSc students every year, and PhD students when they are well qualified and prepared for a longer term commitment (not usually less than 5 years). The Hood Lab welcomes applications for motivated and responsible trainees at any time.
