The Wireless Lab provides ample opportunities for students to engage in research collaborations with industry as well as with other universities or governmental agencies. Many of our students have gone to work for industrial affiliate companies, entered into successful academic careers at institutions around the globe, or founded notable technology start-ups (cf. the Wireless Lab Alumni webpage for more details).
All prospective graduate students looking to study and work within the Wireless Lab must first be accepted by INRS University and be eligible to its own graduate scholarship programs (INRS Scholarships). View information regarding applications and enrollment in the graduate program (How to apply) available at INRS’ website <www.inrs.ca>. Notice that admission to a research program (with master's thesis or doctoral dissertation) is conditional upon acceptance by the Wireless Lab’s Team Leader, Prof. Sofiene Affes, who will direct your work.
The recruitment process is always open. Prof. Affes is looking for students with firm commitment to excellence in all aspects of their life. He values students eager to pursuing an academic career and who are willing to put in the sweat equity to make that happen. Equally, students that have an eye on entrepreneurship and want to bring fundamental innovations in wireless communications to fruition do impress him.
Before submitting your application by email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, please be aware of the following:
