Tips to get the position
I applied the coop position through SFU MyExperience. As this is a research coop, most of the time will be spent working with researchers in the lab. I recommend doing some research regarding the lab to gain some insight about the work they do prior to an interview.
Reflection on Acceptance:
The lab is mostly looking for someone who has a decent academic performance. However, I would say the position is fairly easy to apply for as long as you express your interest during the interview. I was able to get the position with limited technical skills or experiences prior to this coop.
