Co‑op work terms
Co-op opportunities through the Microbiology and Immunology Department
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology offers a Science Co-op experience to qualified students enrolled in the Honours, Combined Honours, or Major degree program. Because national regulations currently require that at least one academic term be replaced by a work term, the Co-op program takes an extra semester to complete. Work placements, beginning in the summer following completion of either your second or third year of studies, are in university or government research laboratories, diagnostic laboratories, or in industry.
These research environments provide an excellent opportunity for Microbiology and Immunology students to learn cutting edge technologies and to interact with working professionals. Through the skills and experience you gain in the co-op program, you'll better prepared for post-graduation employment in fields that are relevant to your educational training.
