    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at McGill University in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    If you don't know a professor or a research associate, you have to go through the regular application process. I suggest exhausting your network and finding several professors that work in your area of research interest and contacting them. Let them know that you are interested in the same field and would like to work for them.
