Student Research Assistants

Every year, NSERC and Departmental Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRAs) are available to provide an opportunity for academically strong undergraduate students to get involved in research activities within the Department, while at the same time providing summer employment from May to August.

These awards aim to encourage students to explore graduate studies and stimulate interests in natural sciences and engineering research by providing the financial support through the University. 

Eligibility

  • Applicants must be full-time students, and must have at least their 1st year in Computer Science completed by the time the position begins.
  • Students in their final year of University are also available to apply.
  • Applicants must have an average of 75%, but due to the competitive nature of the awards, students are encouraged to maintain at least an 80% overall grade.
  • Note: the USRAs provided by NSERC, but not those of the Department, have the additional requirement that applicants be Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

Applications are usually due early January each year, please stay tuned for announcements or contact the Computer Science main office.
