About the McDonald Institute
The McDonald Institute is the Canadian hub for astroparticle physics research, uniting researchers, theorists, and technical experts within one organization. Located at and led by Queen’s University, the McDonald Institute is proud to have 13 partner universities and research institutes across the country, all of which are key players in Canada’s past and future innovation in astroparticle physics.
This online recruitment tool is one of the initiatives we lead and provide for the Canadian Astroparticle Physics community. Find more about us by clicking our logo to the left.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Information about who should apply for each opportunity is listed in the posting itself. In general, international and domestic applicants are encouraged for all PhD (graduate), Postdoctoral, and Faculty positions. Undergraduate, MSc (graduate), Research support and administration, and Engineering and Technical positions may only be open to domestic applications, and will be specified in the opportunity itself. Domestic here means Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
There is graduate student tuition at all of our partner institutes, but whether you pay for it directly depends on your institution, department, and funding situation. In general and at minimum, graduate students are paid by their supervisor as a Research Assistant (RA), and this covers the cost of tuition plus the cost of living. The amount of funding a graduate student is paid after tuition is called Minimum Net Funding, and current values can be seen on Compare Institutes.
This tool is geared towards the astroparticle physics community in Canada, and it would be impossible to answer all questions. We are gathering resources for students and researchers at all levels, and will post them here as we find them.
