PhD and Masters Students

Prof. Mariakakis will not be looking at MSc or PhD applications that are submitted during the 2023–2024 academic year.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate research opportunities within our group are largely based on ongoing projects by graduate students. We regularly identify projects that would be significantly accelerated with the help of an undergraduate student, and then we seek out undergraduates to help with those tasks as needs arise. Undergraduate research activities in our group can require a variety of skills: building a smartphone app, building machine learning models, conducting interviews, helping run longitudinal studies, etc. Undergraduate students at various experience levels may be suitable for these positions depending on the project's timeline and the skills that are already on hand.

We typically recruit students who are already at the University of Toronto. If you fall in that category, you can take a look at the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Portal to see the projects with potential openings. We look at applications sent through this portal for CSC 494/495, NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA), and University of Toronto Excellence Awards (UTEA).

If you are interested in volunteering from within our outside of the university, you may fill out this Google form that we periodically examine for potential recruits.
