The Gerhold lab is part of the Department of Biology at McGill University in the beautiful city of Montreal. We are currently located in the North wing of the Stewart Biology building.


The Gerhold lab is recruiting curious and enthusiastic graduate students (MSc and PhD) and post-doctoral fellows with an interest in cell biology and development and/or computational image analysis for Fall 2023.


We welcome everyone, regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or ability. We are dedicated to advancing equity and representation in science and members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduates: Undergraduates are always welcome provided we have space. Students with a background in computer science who want to help develop computational image analysis tools are particularly encouraged to apply. Please send your CV and brief email explaining why you want to work in our lab.

Graduate candidates (MSc and PhD): Include your CV (including GPA and 3 referees), and a brief description of your previous research experience. Please also explain why you want to join our lab and what project(s) you would like to pursue. Information on the Biology Department graduate program can be found here.
