Graduate Student Research

Research policies

Graduate students and postdoctorals must inform themselves of, and adhere to, the Research Policies and Guidelines outlined in McGill's Graduate and Postdoctoral e-Calendar.

Additional guidelines and tips can be found on McGill's Research and Innovation website.

Research ethics and safety

Researchers working with human participants or animals, or who will be dealing with radioactive or biohazardous materials, must obtain proper certification before the research can begin. For detailed ethics and safety policies, as well as instructions on obtaining certification, please visit the Ethics and Compliance webpage. Additional information on research and lab safety can be found at the Environmental Health and Safety Office.

SKILLSETS also offers graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interactive workshops that provide an introduction to ethically sensitive aspects of conducting research with human subjects.
