Do Research that Changes the way the World Thinks

Discovery happens here.

At the University of Manitoba, our strength comes from our place and our people. Manitoba is cold; it’s flat, it has a challenging climate. But this environment challenges us to adapt, innovate and invent. It compels us to grow and dares us to create. Join the graduate students and researchers who come here from every corner of the world. They are drawn to this place because it offers something that is rare and invaluable: the opportunity to do transformational research.
