WORKSTUDY: RESEARCH ASSISTANT
U of T's Work-Study Program provides students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and experience through paid work on campus. Work-Study positions are for full-time or part-time graduate and undergraduate students (domestic or international). Positions are available in the Fall/Winter Term (September-February) and the Spring/Summer Term (May-August). All positions are CCR Eligible. Hard copies of previous Work-Study jobs are available for students to view at the UTM Career Centre.
Volunteering can be very simple. Find a faculty member that you connect with and approach them either in person or through email. Make sure you are aware of the general background of their research. You can generally ask either ask the professor or a masters student if they need any assistance or volunteers within the lab. As the academic society for the biology department, we would be more than happy to be of help in this process.
