Focused Ultrasound High School Summer Research Program

Each summer, we hire a number of motivated and hard-working high-school students to assist us in a variety of projects we are currently working on in our lab. Our goal is not only to further our progress but to allow these students the experience of working in a lab environment. During the summer, students will gain enriched, hands-on knowledge in the fields of physics, engineering and/or biology that would be difficult to attain elsewhere. We hope to nurture a passion for science and engineering in the next generation and help them move closer to their goals.

Join our team

We are now expanding our employee search to include students from all high schools in the Greater Toronto Area. If you are hardworking, enjoy math and sciences, and would like to benefit from a lab environment during the summer, then our summer student program might be of interest to you.

Though high marks are preferable, they are not the only achievements and qualities we seek in our applicants. We also take interest in individuals who are excellent at working in a team and have good communication skills. Being well-rounded and having a wide range of hobbies and interests will not be overlooked. Due to the high level of difficulty in the projects our interns are expected to complete, we are only looking for students who are in grades 11 or 12. If you are interested in applying for a position, then please send the following documents by email or mail to the contact listed below.

Application deadline: Deadline is now closed for Summer 2014.

Thank you to everyone who submitted an application for the Focused Ultrasound High School Summer Research Program 2014.

We received over 210 applications. All applications will now go through a committee where a short-list will be made for interviews. Candidates will be selected on the overall impression of their application and the types of projects currently available in the lab. Interviews will be held during March break (March 10-21). Those selected for interview will be notified the first week of March. If do you not receive an interview invitation your application will no longer be considered. Only those selected for an interview will be contacted. Please note: emails will not be sent to those who are not offered an interview.
