The CHATR lab runs under leadership of Dr. Meghan Winters, Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University, located in Burnaby, BC, Canada.  The CHATR team also commonly works out of the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute’s Centre for Hip Health & Mobility where Dr. Winters is a core research member.

CHATR Lab would like to acknowledge that our lab members work, reside and thrive in unceded territories across the province. Unceded means that Aboriginal title to this land has never been surrendered or relinquished.  We respectfully acknowledge the unceded traditional territories where our central offices are located: the Coast Salish peoples, including the səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations, on which SFU Burnaby is located; as well as the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations, on which SFU Vancouver is located.

We are always looking for talented trainees at all stages of their academic journey (undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral). If interested, please contact with a current CV, transcript, and a statement of research interests.

Note: It is highly recommended that potential graduate students apply for external sources of funding for their research (e.g. MSFHR, CIHR). Outstanding undergraduates are also encouraged to apply for an SSHRC or NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award. Please contact Dr. Winters well in advance of funder deadlines to allow adequate time to discuss your interests and develop a funding proposal.
