Current Openings at the DISA Lab

PhD Position

I have immediate openings of several fully-funded PhD students. Note that a student with a Bachelor degree can apply directly to a PhD program at the University of Calgary.

The students will work predominantly across my three research areas (see my Research page) The students should have hands-on expertise in software engineering, machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing (core expertise preferred). Please feel free to send me your CV, along with your academic transcripts and a list of your publications.

My PhD students need to be self-motivated and hardworking. It’s ideal for the students to have good programming background, such as in Python, R, Java, etc. It is important for the students to have good communication skills through writeups and presentations.

MSc Position

I do not have any fully-funded MSc position open at this moment. However, the situation could change in near future. Please feel free to send me your CV, along with your academic transcripts and a list of your publications (if any).

My MSc students need to be self-motivated and hardworking. It’s ideal for the students to have good programming background, such as in Python, R, Java, etc. In addition, previous experience in machine learning will be considered as an asset. It’s important for the students to have good communication skills through writeups and presentations.

Undergraduate Students

I love mentoring undergraduate students. The undergraduate students that I mentored generally achieved great results under my supervision (e.g., publications). Please feel free to send me an email if you are an undergraduate student and you are passionate about research.

If you are an international undergraduate student, you may work with me under the Mitacs Globalink Program. See: https://www.mitacs.ca/en/programs/globalink (Project ID: 26565 and 26923).
