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. 

As part of this 10-week program, you'll participate in research workshops, where you'll learn about data analysis, research ethics and how to give effective presentations. You will also have an opportunity to share the results of your research in a presentation to faculty.

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

If you have questions about the summer research program, contact Dr. Martha Brillant, Research Development Officer at mbrillant@dal.ca. Please note that the program is only open to students who are currently enrolled in the Dalhousie Dentistry (DDS1, DDS2) and Dental Hygiene programs.

If you are interested in graduate studies, learn more about our graduate programs or visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
