Faculty Members

Supervisory Faculty

One of the most important aspects of graduate training is the timely, clear identification of a Supervisor for each graduate student.  

All applicants must have a potential supervisor before applying. The supervisor can provide guidance on the application process, the proposed program of research and is required to sign the Supplementary Application form to confirm their review of your application and commitment to supervise. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential supervisors early to discuss common research interests and potential for supervision.

The program is supported by many faculty members from a variety of disciplines. The list of potential supervisors is found here.
