Faculty Supervisors needed for 2024 T-CAIREM Summer Research Studentship Program

The Temerty Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Education in Medicine (T-CAIREM) is seeking supervisors for the 2024 T-CAIREM Summer Studentship Program.

Information for Supervisors

T-CAIREM-affiliated Canadian university faculty members and researchers are eligible to apply. (This includes faculty members and researchers from most Canadian universities and health research institutions that are partners in the T-CAIREM Network.) 

Once the applications for faculty supervisors are collected, we'll post a PDF of potential supervisors with project descriptions and e-mail addresses to the T-CAIREM website. This PDF list will be updated as more supervisors register the availability of summer student positions. Then we'll share the PDF with students who are interested in participating in the program.

Here is the PDF of potential supervisors

Students may also independently find a faculty supervisor who isn't on the PDF list of potential supervisors.

Supervisor application deadline: October 27, 2023 (Fri.)

Apply to become a 2024 Faculty Supervisor

Students and supervisors will then jointly submit full applications by December 15, 2023.  

Supervisor Eligibility

  • Two types of supervisors are eligible to apply:
    1.) All supervisors must be affiliated with a T-CAIREM Network Canadian partner and hold a faculty appointment at the level of assistant, associate or full professor. 
    2.) If supervisors don't have a faculty appointment, they must be either scientists or clinician-scientists with a TAHSN-affiliated institution. 
  • Potential supervisors must be registered T-CAIREM members who are conducting AI research at the time of the application submission. Faculty who are new to AI in health research and aren't yet T-CAIREM members can join here. (Membership is free.)
  • Supervisors may submit a maximum of two (2) applications. However, under normal circumstances, only one studentship will be awarded per supervisor. 
  • Students may not submit more than one application. 
  • Co-supervision is allowed, but for funding purposes, one supervisor must be designated as the primary supervisor who holds the funds.
  • Supervisors from T-CAIREM Network partner organizations are encouraged to apply. To help expand the students' and supervisors' networks, non-UofT affiliated supervisors will mentor UofT students.

Information about Research Projects

Student research may include the development of new algorithms, applying existing algorithms to new health problems (in the basic sciences, clinical, or population levels), as well as work in AI ethics, governance, policy, patient engagement, implementation science, and other areas.

Student Eligibility

• Summer studentships are available to undergraduate and professional degree students enrolled at a Canadian university.

• Students must be entitled to work in Canada.

• Students will be required to work full-time (35 hours per week) for a minimum of 10 weeks between May 1 and August 31, 2024.

• Students must be able to attend the biweekly seminars, a mid-term check-in, and a mini-conference at the end of the summer. 

Student Stipend

• Stipends for students will be a minimum of $7,200 for the 10-week program. T-CAIREM will provide the supervisor’s institution with $3,600. A minimum of $3,600 must be provided by the supervisor.

• The supervisor is also responsible for any additional employment costs such as CPP, EI, vacation pay, etc.
