Undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training opportunities exist in connection with the research of the STAR cluster.
The STAR research cluster welcomes postdoctoral fellows to work closely with its members. The research atmosphere is dynamic and postdocs are invited to participate fully in our projects, workshops, and seminars.
Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada can apply for NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowships. Quebec residents are also eligible for FQRNT fellowships. Interested individuals should contact a cluster member with whom they would like to work.
Many countries have programs designed to allow recent PhD graduates to do research abroad for one or two years. Please check the relevant ministry’s website.
Bishop’s University offers a Masters of Science degree in Physics which is intimately connected to the research of the STAR cluster.

Certain countries have exchange programs with Canada or Quebec, or programs designed to allow PhD students to pursue their research goals and undertake part of their training abroad. We had hosted students taking advantage of such opportunities-please check the relevant ministry’s website in your country.
Undergraduate Summer Research Scholarships
The University Summer Research Award (USRA) of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada has a program aimed at stimulating Canadian students’ interest in research and graduate studies by allowing them to gain experience working in a university research context. Many students take advantage of this opportunity to do research under the supervision of cluster members during the summer. Other students are often hired as research assistants with other arrangements.
