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.

The CHATR Lab respectfully acknowledges the traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikw etlem), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations where SFU Burnaby and Vancouver campuses reside as well as the other unceded and traditional territories across the province in which our lab members live and work.

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.
