A crucial part of CIRGET’s mandate is training a new cohort of young researchers. The working groups and seminars organized by CIRGET members are an inherent part of this training, giving students and postdocs a regular opportunity to learn new ideas and techniques, and discuss them with other CIRGET members working in their field. Through the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM), students also have access to a wide range of specialized courses. Finally, scientific events aimed particularly at young researchers are frequently organized.
Every year CIRGET welcomes a dozen or so postdoctoral fellows to work closely with the Centre’s members. The research atmosphere in Montreal is dynamic and postdocs are invited to participate fully in the colloquia, workshops, and seminars that take place on a regular basis.
Various sources of funding are available. Canadian residents and citizens can apply for a postdoctoral fellowship from NSERC, while Quebec residents are also eligible for FRQNT fellowships. All interested parties are strongly urged to apply for a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship and to specify on their application the names of the members of CIRGET with whom they would like to work. Applications for a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship will be automatically considered for fellowships supported by other sources: CIRGET, research chairs, individual research grants.
Students interested in pursuing their graduate studies under the direction of a CIRGET member are encouraged to contact that member and submit an application to the host university. Funding possibilities include:
Undergraduate Research Internships
Undergraduate students interested in doing a summer research internship at CIRGET are encouraged to contact the professor with whom they would like to work by the end of January. Several sources of funding exist:
