Interested in joining?

Good news then! I am looking for enthusiastic members to join my group.

If you are a prospective graduate student and want to work with me, you will necessarily have to go through the regular application and admissions process of the Department of Physics. Check out the website to figure out how.

Although I have funds to pay for students, bringing your own funding always looks good on a CV! Some of these links explain a few possibilities. The deadlines are only indicative, and prospective members should contact me well in advance.

For undergraduate students:

  • Citizens and permanent residents of Canada can explore the various avenues offered by NSERC: English/français (in particular, check out the Undergraduate Student Research Awards). Deadline: late January or early February (see here).
  • The UofT Centre for Global Change Science offers competitive summer internships. Deadline: late November/early December.
  • UofT students: look up "University of Toronto Excellence Award" (link may vary from year to year).
  • UofT 2nd year physics students: under the SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) program, our department offers $3,000 awards (enough to cover six weeks) to the brightest of you.
  • Engineering Science Students at UofT can participate in the Engineering Science Research Opportunities Program (ESROP). Deadline: February.
  • More opportunities listed here.

For graduate students: 

  • Citizens and Permanent Residents of Canada can explore the various avenues offered by NSERC: English/français. You have to be accepted into our program first.

For post-docs:

  • You can also explore the various avenues offered by NSERC: English/français. Once again, it is easier to be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, but international applicants might want to look at the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. The latter is extremely competitive (only one oceanographer, a marine biologist, received one in the period 2014-2019), to the point that is is mostly a waste of energy. The process for applying starts sometime in July.
  • The Faculty of Arts & Science at UofT offers (very competitive) post-doctoral fellowships. Deadline: February.
