Dr. Sylvain Moreno and the Computational Neuro Lab are looking for new graduate students (Master’s or PhD) to join our group. Applications are due in January/February for a September start. Positions are highly competitive.
Interested applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss their application before applying to SFU. Emails should be sent to Sylvain between September and January. Emails sent outside of this time window will generally not receive a response.
Emails should include the following four items (failure to include one or more will mean your email does not get a reply):
- a description of research interests related to the lab’s existing research; you need to show clear evidence that you have actually looked at the types of research the lab does and read our publications
- a curriculum vitae
- a copy of your unofficial transcript
The School of Interactive Arts and Technology
Simon Fraser University (SFU) has consistently been ranked as one of the top universities in Canada. SIAT is a young, vibrant department at Simon Fraser University with research and teaching in human-computer interaction, interaction design, and media arts. Graduate students take a selection of courses in qualitative or quantitative research methods, computation, interaction design, or media arts. They also complete a written thesis containing a substantial research component. Expected completion time is 2 years for a thesis-based Master’s degree and 4 years for a PhD (read: you will work hard in our group and finish on time!).
SIAT is located at the SFU Surrey campus located in Greater Vancouver, Canada, within the suburb of Surrey. Greater Vancouver lies along the west coast of Canada where the Pacific Ocean meets the majestic mountains. With a population of over 2 million people, Greater Vancouver is known as one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Canada and has been ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world based on quality of life. Vancouver is a great destination for those who love the outdoors (e.g., skiing, hiking, water sports) as well as the indoors (e.g., museums, art, theatre, hockey!).
