Get involved

There are many opportunities for students to get involved in the SR. PuMMP lab. 

Below are some of the options for undergraduates, grad students, and volunteers. 


We believe in welcoming undergraduate students into the lab so they can see first hand what science and research is all about. We have several different opportunities for undergraduate level students within our lab but we strongly suggest that students start as lab volunteers to gain experience working in the lab before progressing onto other opportunities. Below are some of the opportunities we offer undergraduates:

  • Undergraduate volunteers 
  • Summer studentship - Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)/Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
  • Co-op placement
  • Kinesiology (KIN) 391: Research Apprenticeship
  • KIN 431/432: Research Proposal/Research Project
  • Biology (BIOL) 499: Senior Honours Project
