SSP Project/Supervisor Selection:
Step 1: You will find all projects listed on our website beginning December 17, 2021. You will have an opportunity to go through them over the holidays to see where your interest is.
Step 2: Once you return in January you are encouraged to meet with potential supervisors if you have questions about the lab and research project. Supervisors will not be able to guarantee you will be selected to their lab.
Step 3: You can go to this document: Link TBA to rank your top three selections. The document will open on January 4, 2022 and close at 4pm on January 28, 2022. We will endeavor to do our best to give you one of your choices. Please only submit your choices once.
Step 4: In the case where more than one person have listed the same supervisor for 1st choices, the supervisor will be given the opportunity to choose. Keep in mind that there is no guarantees or promises given to students in advance of our decision. You will know by February 15, 2022 who your supervisor will be and which project you will be working on.
Step 5: Once final marks in May have been received we will ensure that everyone meets the requirements to be in BCHM 421 and BCHM 422.
