We welcome applications from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and undergraduate students to our group!

Students interested in joining the group can apply through three different departments/programs at UBC:

Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability

Department of Mechanical Engineering

Atmospheric Science Program, housed in Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science



We are currently not actively recruiting for specific positions. 


Inquiry Instructions: Please review the above links for relevant deadlines and application instructions. If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to amanda (dot) giang (at) briefly describing your research interests and experience and how they connect well with LEAP's research program, and a copy of your CV. Note: We recognize the value of experiences outside of traditional academic or research settings (e.g., organizing, leadership, community service and engagement, personal experiences) for the problem-driven, stakeholder-engaged inquiry undertaken by our group. As a result, you are encouraged to note how these experiences contribute to your research interests and skills as well. Our group is committed to inclusive excellence, and believe that our research to support sustainable, healthy, and just futures is best accomplished with a diversity of perspectives in the research team. Candidates from communities that have experienced historical and ongoing marginalization are particularly encouraged to apply. 

Please use the subject line: LEAP Prospective Student Inquiry - YOUR NAME. Due to funding and supervisory constraints and volume of inquiries, I will prioritize responding to inquiries that follow the above instructions, and where there is a good alignment between our interests. During busy times, I may not be able to respond in a timely fashion, however, when reviewing admissions applications, will consider any received emails as part of the review process. Apologies in advance.
