Focused Ultrasound High School Summer Research Program

High-school students group photo

Each summer, we hire a number of motivated and hard-working high-school students to assist us in a variety of projects we are working on in our lab. Our goal is not only to further our progress, but also 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 biology that would be difficult to attain elsewhere. We hope to nurture a passion for science and engineering in the next generation and help students move closer to their goals.

Join our team

We are expanding our employee search to include students from all high schools in the Greater Toronto Area. If you are hard-working, 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 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.


  • Must be 16 years of age by July 1, 2017
  • Must be able to commit full-time hours Monday to Friday during July and August 2017. Specific start and end dates will be posted in January 2017.

Required Documents

The application deadline is Feb. 10, 2017 at 4 p.m. All four required documents must be submitted by this time.

Due to the number of applications received, email inquiries during the week of the deadline will not be responded to.
