SciVal Experts

SciVal Experts is a web-based portal that can be used to search for faculty by name, research topic or academic unit. An FAQ Page and User Guide are available if you need assistance.

We strongly recommend that you initiate contact with faculty whose research interests you, prior to applying, to discuss potential opportunities in their labs. However, even if you don't receive a response from a faculty member, you are still encouraged to apply. Prior communication is only recommended to assist with matching if you are selected. Full funding will be provided for travel expenses.
