Is it possible to do a second Masters Degree in Biostatistics if I already have a Masters Degree in Statistics?
During my first Masters Degree, I took one Biostatistics course for my elective, and I found the subject really interesting. I thought about taking a PhD program in Biostatistics, but to me PhD is too long and I have some doubts on whether I will be successful as a PhD student. I am particularly interested in Masters degree in Biostatistics that has co-op option, so that I can gain some work experience as well.
But is it possible to take a Masters program in Biostatistics when I already have a Masters degree in Statistics?
I have been gradually working on qualifying for graduate school in occupational therapy since 2012. I have BA in Art Education with a GPA of 2.99 – I had depression twice and it effected my GPA; so I decided to upgrade it by taking courses, and the schools in Canada look at CGPA going back 60 credits. Now, even though I have been achieving A’s, my CPGA is only 3.2, as I can do courses part-time only. I have some discontinued courses in my transcript (then and more currently), and I am concerned about being judged for this. The advice I was given from an advisor was to take easy courses that I was also very interested in. I have not done any research yet, nor published anything, but am seeking to volunteer in a lab, and I will continue to work as a patient attendant in the sunmmer/holiday period (I have since 2010). Will these gaps in my transcript be held against me? I am 41 and truly want to become and OT and do research that makes an impact with healthcare providers. It is incredibly competitive to get into the professional MSc, let alone the combined MSc/PhD which is what I want to do. Is there any way to improve my profile? Thank you so much for any/all constructive feedback, I truly appreciate it.
I have done my masters in computer science in India. Now I am looking for a PhD in Canada. I want to know the requirements for a PhD program.

I am currently concluding my PhD in England and I’d like to do a postdoc preferably in the US or Canada. I’d like to know:
Does it make sense to contact the supervisors when I find an interesting project or should I only act upon explicit job advertisements?
I am currently concluding my PhD in England and I’d like to do a postdoc preferably in the US or Canada. I want to know what is the best approach to find and apply for a postdoc position in the US/Canada? In specific, I’d like to know that:
1) Should I contact the supervisors directly when I find an interesting project or should I only contact PIs who advertised a postdoc position?
2) What should I include in my emails to potential recruiters? (obviously apart from my CV!)
3) If my publications are still pending [submission/review/publication], how should I mention them in my application?
4) If I want to apply for a position that is related to my PhD project, but I don’t have enough experience in the field how I should construct my statement letter? (Let say for example I worked in the field of genomics and I’d like to do a postdoc in machine learning!)
I am under the impression that holding a European style PhD (3 year research) already put me in disadvantage for getting a postdoc in the US/Canada? Is that true? how best this could be dealt with?
I recently received a 1st-year physics postdoc fellowship offer at a university in Canada for two to three years. The annual salary is 55,000 CAD (44,000 in USD). I haven’t worked in North America at all. I was just wondering how good this salary is.
I vaguely remember some new law-enforced minimum postdoc salary of 47,000 USD in the US. Does it mean it’s not that good? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I am graduate of Toronto University. In my master program, I, unfortunately, fail an elective course. I took an extra course to offset the credit and I pass.My overall grade is A- (except for the FZ one!).
I am intending to apply for a PhD. However, my transcript has an FZ which may be will interfere with the application procedure since UofT is very competitive Uni.
Can anyone please suggest me if it would be a good plan to retake the course (fail course)? Suppose I got a good grade, what would be the improvement?
or, any other way I can impress the admission authority.
NB. Other than this FZ (I call it as a disaster in my academic career), I have a good academic record.
Thank you in advance for your time and be with my worries.

Is it feasible to be non-Native and non-Canadian born and find opportunities in qualitative research in the academia on Northern remote aboriginal communities (Northern BC, Yukon and Northwest Territories) focused on LGBTQ youth ( or two-spirit) and suicide ?
