Funding is available for graduate students/fellows at all levels – Masters, Doctoral and Post-Doctoral – interested in pursuing research in health care in the College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. Applicants should have a background in in industrial engineering, operations research, management science, statistics, economics, computer science, mathematics or other related fields. Students with experience in discrete event simulation and/or optimization are particularly encouraged to apply. Research will involve real world problems and solutions rather than purely theoretical investigations; key areas of study within health care include cancer clinic operations, patient and resource scheduling, and CT utilization.
Minimum requirements for admission to graduate studies at the University of Saskatchewan are available on the U of S College of Graduate Studies and Research website (http://www.usask.ca/cgsr/admission/admission_proc.php).
