We have multiple open positions for undergraduates, summer interns, MSc and PhD students (all funded). A postdoctoral position could also be arranged for the right candidate.
For undergraduates at McGill interested in working in our group, please fill this form and one of the current students in the group will be reaching out to you directly if there is a match.
Please note that I get more emails that I can respond to and there is a good chance I will not get back to you. The best place to mention you are interested in working with me is in the application files to McGill and/or Mila. I will review all the applications submitted if they mention my name. Please note that there is no application fee for Mila applications which serve moslty as a mean for supervisor search before the university deadlines.
If you prefer to send an email, please read the following instructions and include them in the email.
Format the subject as ''Prospective student: [PhD, MSc, Intern, Postdoc] '' in the subject of your email.
Add ''internal'' in the subject of your email if you are a current McGill student.
Add ''published in x, y, z'' if you have notable publications
Attach a CV in pdf when sending the email (avoid external link to CV). Attaching transcripts, and links to github or personal websites are also recommanded.
Help me understand your programming skills (especially if your major is not CS). Most of my research projects are applied and involve working with large datasets and a good amount of programming.
Give me a sample of your writing in English, it could be a published paper, a project report, or a short summary of one of my papers.
If I do not reply to your email, send me a reminder, by resending your original email. More than two reminder in one month is pointless. I read all emails and take note of those that should be followed up, but may not be able to reply to them in a timely manner or at all. A lack of reply, is the most common senario, and only reflects on my busy schedule.
- For undergraduates interested in PhD positions:
At McGill (and most Canadian universities), the usual procedure is to apply for a PhD after completing your MSc. If you are interested in a PhD right after your undergraduate studies, you still need to apply to the MSc program first, which is funded similar to the PhD program and can be fast-tracked to a PhD after a year. Please mention if this is your email/sop clearly. Otherwise, I will assume you are only interested in the direct admission into the PhD program, which is very unlikely to happen unless your case is exceptional.
