In the next application cycle, we will seek students to apply to the UofT Mechanical & Industrial Engineering graduate program to join our lab. We are looking for strong graduate candidates who might have:

  • Experience with computer-aided design or model-based systems engineering software
  • Strong background in statistics and data analytics
  • Motivation to improve communication skills
  • Ability to design and run human subject experiments


Undergraduate thesis students, current MEng students, and undergraduate students looking for summer research are invited to apply to the lab.

How to Apply?

Please email Prof. Olechowski with your CV and include the phrase “We The North” in the subject.

We believe that a diversity of experience and background in lab is an important source of creativity and quality of work, and so we seek applicants from under-represented groups, including those who identify as women, trans or non-binary, Black, racialized, Indigenous, persons with disabilities, and LGBQ2S+ persons.
