Finding a supervisor

Finding a Supervisor

Finding a supervisor – an academic faculty member who serves as a mentor for a graduate student currently completing their MSc or PhD thesis work – is an important process in your graduate career.

When researching potential supervisors, you should always talk to several professors before asking one to become your supervisor.  Once a potential fit has been made, you can arrange a future meeting to discuss further. 

  • Review available supervisors’ academic online profiles and read their publications to find a supervisor that has a record of research and publication in your area of interest.
  • Become familiar with their supervision style and contact former and current students to help you to find the most suitable match.  
  • Contact a potential supervisor through an introductory, professional, and clear email stating your intention to work with them in the upcoming academic year. Tell them about yourself, including your background, previous research you’ve been a part of and people you’ve previously worked with. Make a case for yourself while keeping in mind that the relationship is realistic.
  • Ask about availability during your program period and determine if they're planning any extended absences during that time.
