  Combined Effects of Acute Exercise and Sleep Restriction on Cognition
  Dr T. Dang-Vu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position in the Sleep, Cognition and Neuroimaging Lab (SCNLab) at Concordia University, Department of Health, Kinesiology, and Applied Physiology.
  Creating photonic analogues of bilayer 2D materials
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When two layers of a 2D materials are assembled into a structure, rich new behaviours can appear, such as the superconductivity at the magic angle in bilayer graphene.
  Design and properties of “photonic graphene” and other photonic analogues of 2D materials
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene is a very interesting 2D material, with very interesting properties. Some of those properties come from the particular arrangement of its carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice.
  Design of topological nanowire lasers using modified honeycomb lattices of III-V nanowires
  Dr P. Bianucci
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we investigate novel science in photonics and develop novel metaphotonic lasers using technologically important materials.
  Experimental quantum strain engineering of graphene
  Dr A. Champagne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project starts with a focus on developing an applied theoretical model, while getting trained on experimental methods. The student will gain a deeper understanding of quantum transport, strain-engineering of band structure and Hamiltonians, and magic-angle bilayer superconductors.
  High-throughput screening of single-cell dynamics using microfluidics and optical tweezers
  Dr L. Potvin-Trottier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Previously, we have succeeded in engineering the most precise and robust synthetic oscillator to date. This was done with multiple iterations of precise evaluation of the circuit’s properties in a microfluidic device, stochastic modeling of the circuit followed by re-design, to end up with a handful of circuits.
  Signatures of collective response in doped Graphene
  Dr S. Maiti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electronic properties of Graphene have proven to be quite remarkable.
  Ultrasound-triggered microbubble vibration physics towards enhanced local drug delivery
  Dr B. Helfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sonoporation, the reversible and transient opening of cell plasma membranes using ultrasound and microbubbles, is an exciting new approach to targeted and local therapeutic delivery in cancer and cardiovascular disease applications.
  Full waveform seismic processing for mineral exploration
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The search for very deep deposits is becoming more and more important in mineral exploration. Due to the absence of surface indicators and the prohibitive cost of deep drilling, indirect methods, such as geophysical surveys, are essential in such context.
  Fully Funded PhD Studentship in Nano-Photonics for 2D Materials
  Prof L Razzari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Razzari’s research group at INRS-EMT invites applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship on the development of novel nanophotonic devices.
  Effect of Mediator on transcriptional bursting
  Dr F Robert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mediator is a universal transcriptional coactivator (Jeronimo and Robert, 2017; Soutourina, 2018). It is recruited to enhancers by sequence-specific transcription factors and allows communication between the enhancers and their target promoters.
  The role of phase separation in RNA polymerase II transition from initiation to elongation
  Dr F Robert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High resolution mapping of elongating RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) in yeast using Native Elongating Transcript sequencing (NET-seq) revealed frequent pausing events in the 5’end of genes (Churchman and Weissman, 2011).
  Is epigenetic information is exchanged between sister chromatids to restore chromatin structure and maintain epigenetic information after DNA replication?
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DNA in eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin. Far from being an inert packing material, chromatin is a rich source of information for gene regulation.
  The role of phase separation in epigenetic inheritance by Polycomb Group proteins.
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, the role of phase separation in organizing macromolecules in cells is increasingly appreciated. This includes the organization of chromatin into physical and functional domains.
  Development of a bio-based membrane for application as weather barrier in the building industry
  Prof P Blanchet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weather barriers are membranes used in the building wall envelopes. Their function is to prevent water (and wind) from entering the vulnerable sections of walls and roofs, while allowing moisture to escape to the outside.
