Biology at Carleton extends far beyond the classroom to laboratories and field stations all over the world. Our graduate and undergraduate students are extensively engaged in research with faculty members at the university and with researchers outside of Carleton.

Graduate students benefit from our membership in the Ottawa Carleton Institute of Biology (OCIB) which is joint research-intensive collaboration with the University of Ottawa.

Undergraduate research is also a key component of our programs. Our students work closely with faculty members and their laboratory groups on cutting-edge research projects. There are multiple ways to get involved including paid positions, volunteer work, summer research positions, and research course credit.

We invite you to look at faculty research interests and find ways in which you can become a member of a cutting edge research team.
