Some of our faculty will also directly hire students to work in their lab. Since these positions generally are not advertised you need to contact our professors to find out about any opportunities. Making that initial contact can be nerve wracking but UBC’s Careers Service has some tips on contacting faculty members.


Graduate Students

To enter the graduate program you need to submit an application through Graduate Studies. Find out about the application process and entry requirements.

UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
