*** 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.

In your email, please include the following:
a list of relevant projects (or courses taken),
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 would be unreasonable to expect that I try to find a supervisor for each applicant.
