Research Opportunities:

  • Prize Scholarships for Summer Research

    Quantum Information and Quantum Control are exciting areas of 
    cross-disciplinary scientific research, which aim to exploit  
    fundamentally quantum mechanical phenomena for important technological  
    applications in communications, computing, laser control of molecular  
    processes and metrology.


    The Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC),  
    located at the University of Toronto, is accepting applications for  
    Prize Scholarships for Undergraduate Students to undertake Summer  
    Research Projects at the University of Toronto in 2015. CQIQC will  
    provide funds for students to spend the summer working in one of the  
    research groups associated with the Center.

    Qualifications: Advanced undergraduates majoring in Mathematics,  
    Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Quantum  
    dynamics in molecules and nanoscale systems or related areas, with  
    excellent GPA's who have one or more years remaining in their  
    programme before the expected completion of their undergraduate degree.

    Participating members can be found at:

    How to apply: Send your CV, (including course listing with grades up  
    to the Fall term of 2014), a one page personal statement of your  
    research interests, and (if possible) a letter of support by a faculty  
    member to:

    Anna Ho, CQIQC Administrator,
    Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto,
    80 St. George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5S 3H6

    Closing date: 15 December 2014
  • Kupcinet-Getz Summer Program

    The program accepts a select number of outstanding undergraduate students to participate in research projects in mathematics and computer Science, physics, chemistry and life sciences during the summer of 2015.

  • U of T QBMG Event - January 15 & 16, 2014

    The Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto is hosting an event to provide information about our Quantitative Biology in Molecular Genetics PhD Program (QBMG).
    This interdisciplinary program is aimed at aiding undergraduates in physics, math, computer science, chemistry, and engineering who have an interest in biology to enter the Molecular Genetics PhD program directly.
    There will be two identical 1-hour sessions at 5PM on January 15th and 16th 2015, where faculty will introduce the program and answer any questions you may have.
    Food will be served
    Where: The InteractHome, Room 4284 of the Medical Sciences Building on the U of T campus (see attached map)
    When: January 15th and 16th at 5PM (identical sessions)
    How to attend: Submit your RSVP to me by 5PM on Monday, January 12 by filling in this short survey:
