AVAILABLE POSITIONS

*** There are currently several positions (postdoc, PhD, and master's) available. ***


When applying, please note that there are three types of positions:

(1) Funded positions,

(2) Positions for students bringing in their own funding such as OGS, NSERC PGS, or International scholarships,

(3) Visiting student or researcher positions.

* Positions of type (1) are limited and very competitive. 


If you:

  • would like to pursue graduate studies at a top-tier Canadian university
  • are interested in machine learning, artificial intelligence, signal processing, data science, wearable technologies, the internet of things, interactive systems, and human-computer interaction
  • are creative and innovative
  • are hands on, independent, and take initiative
  • have a very strong background in math
  • are very good at programming and coding [preferably Matlab and/or Python]

then contact me at: ali.etemad@queensu.ca


In your email, please include the following:

  • your CV,
  • a list of relevant projects (or courses taken),
  • a paragraph or two on why you would like to join the Aiim Lab,
  • mention whether you are applying for a funded position, are self-funded (through OGS, NSERC GS, etc), or are applying for a visiting position.


A few notes:

* For international applicants, having your IELTS or TOEFL scores at the time of your application or soon after is expected.

* For masters applicants, having publications is not mandatory, but will make your application much more competitive. 

* For PhD applicants, it is expected that you have a few publications from your masters project.

* Mentioning papers under review is certainly ok (if you are prepared to share a pre-print upon request). But papers "under preparation" or "to be submitted" do not count.

* I answer every application email, whether positive or negative. But it might take a few days or even weeks depending on my load. If you don't hear back after a month or so, the chances are that your email has gone to my spam and you can try again.

* Please do not attach Zip folders. I do not open them for security reasons. A PDF of your CV is sufficient.

* Upon rejecting your candidacy for any reason, unfortunately I cannot forward your application to my colleagues, simply because I receive many applications every day and it unreasonable to expect that I try to find a supervisor for each applicant.
