How to join our lab:

I am always interested in considering applications from highly motivated and enthusiastic applicants. If you are interested in joining our group as a graduate student, I can consider applicants who have been admitted to the following graduate programs of McMaster University.

Students accepted by one of these programs can work in the Melacini group, depending on the availability of positions at the time the application is processed. Please don’t hesitate to contact me to check for availability. However, please look up our research page and our publications first so you can get an idea of the kind of work we do.

If you are interested in joining our group as an Undergraduate Senior Thesis Project or Summer Student, Postdoctoral Fellow or Visiting Scholar, please e-mail me to further discuss the availability of positions. Please note that usually we don’t accept summer student volunteers.  Very Important Note: for undergrad and grad students who are already at McMaster prior to joining our lab, please make every effort to attend all required safety trainings BEFORE actually joining our lab. If you don’t do so, you will experience a significant delay in your project as you are not allowed to work in the lab without all necessary safety training. Further information about safety trainings can be found here. Every application will be given careful consideration, but I apologize in advance if I cannot reply to all e-mail messages received.
