PhD Students

Perimeter Institute offers a rich environment for PhD students with unparalleled opportunities to interact with research leaders from around the world, while laying the foundation for a future career in physics.

PhD students supervised by a Faculty or Associate Faculty member located at the Perimeter Institute receive their degree from the partnering university where their supervisor has a full or adjunct appointment. These universities include the University of Waterloo, University of Guelph, University of Toronto, York University, McMaster University, and Western University. Past graduates have obtained competitive postdoctoral fellowships at international institutions, including NASA, MIT, and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics.

PhD students at Perimeter are supported by the Perimeter Residency Doctoral Award. This award must be applied for separately and is typically done so before the submission of a PhD application.
