Maybe you have a yen to work in the diamond industry. Or help solve global warming. Or study the diet of blue whales. Our accomplished faculty love nothing better than welcoming those with inquisitive minds and giving them the opportunity to ask questions, tackle problems, and learn by doing. You might know you’re a scientist at heart the day you arrive at StFX. You might discover it as you go. Either way, you’re going to get focused, personal attention and unparalleled opportunities to work alongside top researchers as they do their stuff—which might just become your stuff, too.
Our faculty is comprised of accomplished scientists, providing students with a solid foundation to go on to award-winning research, further study and tremendous scientific careers.
One of the greatest advantages we provide our students is the opportunity to work side-by-side with professors. It’s an experience rare in the large research labs of urban universities where the major emphasis is on graduate programs.
