Join us

If you are interested in joining the lab for graduate school, e-mail Dr. Guastavino in advance of the application deadline with your CV attached that describes your research interests, your academic background and why you wish to join our lab. Admission requirements for the MISt and Ph.D. programs are available on the School of Information Studies website: MIStPh.D.. Applicants with research experience in any combination of information studies, cognitive or environmental psychology, acoustics, music cognition, or linguistics are especially encouraged to apply. We strongly recommend that you apply for external fellowships/scholarships to support your graduate studies (e.g., NSERC, CIHR, SSHRC, or Provincial student fellowships). Note that the deadlines for these fellowships/scholarships are in the Fall semester of the year prior to your graduate studies start-date. So please plan accordingly! Funding from research and teaching assistantships may also be available.

If your GPA is 3.7 or above, you are encouraged to apply for the McGill Tomlinson Fellowship when you submit your application materials, which could help to support your graduate studies at McGill. This is especially important for non-Canadian citizens and non-Canadian permanent residents; students of all nationalities who have not been formally enrolled in a program at McGill are eligible for the Tomlinson fellowships. The deadline for submitting all materials is in early January; the application is completed by the applicant with the potential advisor’s input, and standard practice is to submit these materials along with your graduate school application. See the guidelines for further information. Provincial grants are also available for foreign citizens who wish to pursue doctoral studies or postdoctoral studies at McGill. They are described at the McGill Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website and at the provincial FRQNT website. Applications are prepared with the advisor’s input, and are typically due in the summer before the university application deadline; if you are interested, contact Dr. Guastavino well ahead of time. Postdoctoral awards are also available from the Tomlinson program, and from each of the Canadian federal granting agencies (NSERC, CIHR, SSHRC). Please contact Dr. Guastavino to coordinate an application to one of these programs.

As a graduate student in the lab, you will have considerable freedom in formulating your research project in relevant areas. Initially, students are encouraged to be active members of the team and gain experience with ongoing research projects. Then, in collaboration with Dr. Guastavino, they develop their own research project. All lab members are expected to contribute to lab meetings, present their research at conferences and publish their research findings under the direction of Dr. Guastavino.
