Limited summer research positions are offered to undergraduate students through Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA). Directed Studies (MICB 448) is an unpaid research opportunity available to undergraduate students in the Majors or Honours program. In general, you should anticipate that a directed studies course will require about 10-15 hours per week. If you intend to do a directed studies project, contact the Undergraduate Advisor for permission.
For all research positions, please browse our Faculty Listings, which includes areas of research for our faculty and associate members. Contact any faculty members directly with whom you would like to work and to see if there is research space available in their lab. There is no central list of faculty members who are looking for summer students or directed studies students.
Please make arrangements well in advance of your proposed start date; for summer positions, begin looking in January. Students cannot be guaranteed space in a research lab or on a research project as there are more students seeking research experience than space available.
