PhD Exchange Program

The McDonald Institute has launched the new PhD Exchange Program! This program will expand opportunities for Canadian and International PhD students to get experience and international exposure during their studies in astroparticle physics or related fields. There are a limited number of awards annually and will cover the costs of travel and accommodations during the exchange. Exchanges in astroparticle physics can be up to 6 months in duration and can support Canadian PhD students going to a foreign country, or any international PhD students coming to Canada.

For more information on the program or to sponsor PhD Exchanges, please contact

Visiting Scientist Program

The McDonald Institute welcomes applications from scientists with an interest in advancing areas of research that align with the objectives of the McDonald Institute. Visits will range from 3 to 12 months and will be specifically for collaborative work on research projects at a host institution, similar to a research sabbatical. The host institution may be in Canada or abroad.
