Join our HIVE!

Thank you for your interest in joining our team! We are always happy to hear from motivated students, postdocs, and researchers interested in seeing if HIVE lab might be the right place for them. Please contact zahra[dot]shakeri[@]utoronto[dot]ca for more details or read more about what we do on the Project page.

Requirements: While proficiency in all these areas is beneficial, it is not a strict requirement. We value a diverse range of experiences and skill sets, and we encourage all interested candidates to apply. We are particularly interested in candidates with a keen interest in health informatics, AI, machine learning, natural language processing, or information visualization. Candidates with a degree in computer science, data science, public health, or a related field are preferred, though it is not mandatory. We also look for candidates with programming skills, excellent analytical and problem-solving abilities, the capacity to work both independently and collaboratively within a team, strong written and verbal communication skills, a passion for health equity, a commitment to contributing to meaningful research, and the ability to commit to a regular, consistent schedule.


If you are interested in pursuing a postdoctoral position with our lab and meet the general requirements, we will need to collaborate on securing funding through postdoctoral scholarships, unless a funded position is announced through a special hiring call. In the absence of such a call, please consider planning for available funding opportunities. If your application is successful, we would be delighted to welcome you to our team. Ensure you are aware of both internal and external deadlines for each opportunity and communicate your plans with me at least three months prior to the deadline.

Full-time Graduate Students

Thank you for your interest in HIVE Lab. Please note that we are not accepting applications for new MSc or PhD students for Fall 2024. However, we encourage you to stay updated as we may introduce new graduate positions for Fall 2025. We look forward to connecting with you and learning more about your interests in the future. Thank you for considering us in your academic journey!

Part-time Graduate Students

For part-time candidates, we are exclusively accepting applications for our self-funded MSc programs. We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds, including clinical, epidemiology, and computer science, who are interested in applying novel data science techniques in their fields. Positions for part-time MSc students are available for Fall 2025.

Volunteers and Practicum Students

We are grateful for your interest in our Summer 2024 positions. However, we have currently reached our capacity for team members for this period. While we may not have summer openings, we do encourage those seeking volunteer Research Assistant or internship opportunities to consider us for the Fall 2024 term and contact us after mid-August. Thank you again for your interest, and we hope to potentially collaborate in the future.
