Volunteer and Internship Positions
I, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger, am looking for volunteers for my lab at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada.
As part of our volunteer program you will have access to the resources of my Lab,
gain experience, experience a world-leading city,
and have the opportunity to engage and collaborate with our members.
We are currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers to contribute in the following areas:
We cannot support undergraduate students for paid internships, especially if they
are here with visa status.
One of the main issues here is that the local bureaucratic
and financial overhead for financial support for internships is relatively large.
Consequently, I can only offer international internships without funding.
If you need funding you should consider finishing your undergraduate studies first
and then apply for a graduate student position.
I do not offer remote internships.
