Trainees Recruitment

I have a continual interest in recruiting talented and dedicated MSc and PhD students or post-doctoral fellows to work with me in biostatistics, and related areas. If you have any general questions about my research areas, you are welcome to contact me.

Applications for Ph.D and Masters programs in statistics should be sent to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Contact Ms. Jennifer Read for applications in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Applications for the collaborative MSc program specialized in biostatistics can be sent to either the Department of Public Health Sciences or the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Contact Ms. Sue Preston for applications in the Department of Public Health Sciences and Ms. Jennifer Read for applications in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

I also co-supervise students in Ph.D and Masters programs in epidemiology. Please contact the program directors of the two programs if you have any questions in your application.
