Prospective Students and Researchers

We are always looking for enthusiastic, driven students and researchers to join our team. If you are interested in any of the opportunities below, please reach out by email to Prof Loeb at Please include your CV, a short description of your research interests, your desired position or program of study, desired start term, and information on any external funding that you have already applied for or are seeking.

Please note that I receive several emails per day from prospective students. If your email does not include the above information, or your research interests don't clearly align with our group, you will be much less likely to receive a response.

Graduate Students [PhD and Master's]. Graduate students interested in joining our group must apply to the Department of Civil Engineering at McGill University. Please review the program requirements, including minimum academic requirements, application details and deadlines on the department website. It is best to contact Prof Loeb by email to express your interest in joining the group a few months before the application deadline. We currently have open positions for Fall 2023 and Winter 2024.

Undergraduate Students. I am always pleased to hear from ambitious undergraduate students at McGill who take an interest in our research! Undergrads may consider applying for the SURE (summer undergraduate research in engineering) program, or taking the research course CIVE470.
