I am an undergraduate student looking forward to applying for a Master or preferably a direct Ph.D. program for Fall 2019. My undergraduate degree is in physics and I want to study data science or applied mathematics or a master in statistical physics (In order to change to data science for a Ph.D.).

I will be recognized as an international student in North America and Europe and I have scored 7.0 in the IELTS exam and my GPA is 3.6 out of 4 and I have publications.

I most certainly need a fully funded scholarship/fellowship to cover my tuition fee and living expenses and that’s the top priority for me.

(I found the answer here helpful)

A) My first question is which region is, in general, better for my application request?

Given the fact, I should also take the GRE test (Which is very expensive for me in my country) for the US and Canada but they offer direct Ph.D. programs.

B) My second question is what I have noticed while emailing the professors.

US professors which have replied to my email positively have stated that they take new direct Ph.D. students in research groups but I must first be admitted to the university. Is there a way I make sure if I am admitted I will receive this funding?

Can US professors affect the results of the admission process in any way? Like by directly accepting a student? if so how can I ask for it without being rude?
What about EU or Canada?

I am master of engineering science graduate from Malaysia and here, the M.Sc. doesn’t have any course work so it is pretty much like a 2 years Ph.D. thus I don’t have any transcript or what-so-ever, only my publications, thesis and graduation letter. I want to know if it is acceptable to apply in Canadian universities without having any masters degree transcript or grading. Unfortunately the university graduate office is not willing to answer my question unless I pay the application fee and wait for 12 weeks.

P.S: I also have talked with a supervisor (in Uottawa) and he has already stated that he is willing to supervise me.

I am a civil engineering graduate (graduated 2018) trying to break into the analytics field. I graduated from a tier 2 college in my country with an average GPA of 3.0/4.0 (7.5/10.0). I am looking for masters in applied statistics since I have always been interested in mathematics but didn’t have the opportunity to take it up.

I am taking a year off to improve my skill set as well as re-evaluate my options and I realize that I am not interested in Civil engineering and I don’t find it easy to break into this field either without contacts. I have done a project in construction management with AI, optimization techniques, etc. I am good with coding and trying to get certifications for that. But I want to know what skills can make me a strong applicant for a masters in applied statistics with my profile. what should I do?

I am really confused and I will really appreciate any direction I can get.

I’m taking a 3-year college in software development, and, where i live (Brazil) it’s not considered a Bachelor (4 years, at least), but i dont know where my course fits in canada’s classification, its not an associated (2 years) neither a Bachelor (4 years), what’s the most equivalent to my degree in Canada? (I cant apply for equivalence programs, i didnt finish my college yet).
Am I able to apply for a master in canada with my 3-year college?

I am bit puzzled, regarding the payment made to postdocs in Canada. I am a PhD and in my first postdoc (Europe). For my next assignment, I am in my final stages of negotiating a position of postdoc at University of Toronto. I looked over some advertisements for the position that said the salary will range from 60k to 80k.

My first question is:

  1. In general the postdocs associated with UHN are awarded salary or stipend?

  2. How much salary can I expect as this is my second postdoc (I need to run a family of 4, in Toronto)?

I know from my past experience that salaries can be negotiated, depending upon the need of hiring PI and your eagerness to join the team.

Could anyone provide me with inputs.

Many thank’s in advance.

Professors of mathematics in research universities get grants and funding from time to time. I have two questions regarding this issue:

1) There are many sources of grants and funding, are there any ways to search the records of grants & funding a person got? (Of course I know I can ask that person or I may consult the records of each single sources, but I just want to know is there a more convenient way to do that.)

2) What are the most common grants and funding math professors get? (I am not shopping among those sources, which sources are most commonly gotten in this field has statistical and objective answer)

I am asking about the information in United States and Canada.
