If you are interested in graduate studies in applied avalanche safety research at SFU, you can either pursue a graduate degree in Resource and Environmental Management or Geography. Both of these programs offer Master’s and PhD degree programs. Please visit the respective websites for program details and admission requirements.

Fall 2019

We are currently looking to add 1 or 2 new Master’s students to the SARP team in the fall of 2019. Research topics have not been specified yet but will be in the areas of professional decision-making in avalanche terrain and the promotion of public avalanche awareness. Check out our Research Areas and Publications pages to learn more about our past and current projects.

Interested students are encouraged to contact Dr. Pascal Haegeli to discuss opportunities.
