I look for students interested to do research in challenging problems in computational physics, in the area of space physics, and interaction between space environment and spacecraft. Applicants should have a strong academic background in physics and mathematics. They would be expected to show initiative in their research work, and be highly motivated to learn. Applications are invited for students starting at the MSc level with the possibility of transferring to the PhD program within the first year of their studies, subject to satisfactory performance in course work and research.
N.B.: In order to be considered for admission in September of a given year, prospective students should submit a complete application by February 1 of that year. Their application will then be reviewed by our admissions committee and, if selected, they will receive an offer of admission from our Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. The selection of students is based on a competitive process whereby applicants with the highest academic standing are made offers of admission.
