Student Research

The Dalhousie University Faculty of Dentistry offers a limited number of paid summer research positions to students in the Dalhousie Dentistry and Dental Hygiene programs.

Our Summer Student Research Program gives you the opportunity to conduct or assist with a research project under the supervision of a faculty member. 

A call for student applications to the Summer Research Program is issued annually to students by email in March.

If you have questions about the summer research program, contact the research development officer at Please note that the program is only open to students who are currently enrolled in the Dalhousie University dentistry (DDS1, DDS2) and dental hygiene programs.
