CLICK HERE: Contact Prof. Godin to ask about pursuing your graduate studies in the Godin Lab

*** Before submitting an official application to our graduate program, use the form above to communicate with Prof. Godin with your interest in joining our lab. ***

*** Si vous êtes francophones, n’hésitez pas de communiquer avec moi en français. Vous pouviez même profiter des bourses offertes aux francophones! ***

There are currently openings for those interested in multidisciplinary research:

If you are interested in applying your knowledge of physics/engineering to develop micro- and nano-technologies that target applications in the life sciences, please follow the link below (PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS JUST A PRELIMINARY STEP THAT ALLOWS ME TO ORGANIZE YOUR FILES. THIS IS NOT AN OFFICAL APPLICATION TO THE UNIVERSITY.):

On the form, please include the following:

1. A covering letter that includes a brief statement of interest (<500 words) discussing why you are interested in joining the lab. Be as specific as possible! The cover letter should also indicate whether you hold, have applied or plan to apply for any external or internal funding or fellowships (e.g., NSERC, CIHR, OGS, FRSQ, FQRNT etc.). This applies to all applicants regardless of your level of studies. You should also specify if you qualify for the scholarship for francophones.

2. A recent and detailed CV. You CV should include a summary of your academic results (GPA).

3. A recent copy of your transcripts (grades). (This does not need to be a "certified" copy at this stage.)

For other requirements, important information about the various programs and the details of application procedures, please refer to the Department of Physics website.

Please note that while I will try to respond to all applications, I might not be able to respond to all submissions due to the high number of applicants.

The province of Ontario imposes different tuition fees for international students compared to Canadians or Permanent residents of Canada.  In fact, the tuition and health insurance costs for international students are much higher. This makes it more difficult for me to financially support international students. However, there are several fellowship and exchange programs, some of which can help cover these extra costs.  I encourage you to have a look at the following page to see if you fit within any of these programs.

The University of Ottawa eliminated the increased tuition fee for francophone international students! If you studied in French in the past, make sure to mention this fact in your cover letter! Some details are available on the international office website.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

While some internal funding is available, it is highly recommended to apply for other sources of funding, including fellowships and awards. You can start your search for potential internal sources of funding here:
