Contribute to the research of the Kildea lab

The Kildea Lab welcomes expressions of interest from students and professionals interested in joining our dynamic and diverse research team.

Application form.

Undergraduate students:

We offer undergraduate student research projects via the MDPH 396 Medical Physics Research Project course at McGill University as well as the PHYS 449 Majors Research Project course in Physics. These courses are offered during all semesters.

Oncology Diploma students:

We offer clinically-oriented research projects or quality improvement projects via the ONCO 630 Oncology Practicum course that John Kildea coordinates in the Winter Semester.

MSc students:

Normally, John Kildea supervises year-2 Medical Physics MSc students from McGill’s CAMPEP-accredited MSc program. Students coming from outside of this program are unlikely to be accepted except in rare circumstances where there is an excellent project-student match.

PhD students:

Strong MSc students with experience in medical physics, radiation biology, software engineering or health informatics who are interested in working on any of our NICE, ROKS or Opal research projects are encouraged to send us their CVs, (unofficial) transcripts and statements of interest for consideration via our application form.


It is not often that we have the funding to support postdocs. However, if you feel you have a strong match to our research, please let us know and we may explore funding options together.

Opal Health Informatics Group:

For software developer and other positions in the Opal Health Informatics Group, please check the OHIG webpage for openings.
