Funded Student Opportunities (IDPhD and MES)

As a funded student (i.e. through a faculty member`s research project), you will have the opportunity to work on real-world research projects relating to issues of pressing concern to society, government and industry. 

Teaching and research assistants

Many SRES students find Teaching Assistant or Research Assistant positions. Opportunities are posted, usually to students throughout the university, and there is an application process.

Positions within SRES are limited but our students are targeted for many positions with other departments such as the undergraduate Environmental Science Program and the College of Sustainability. Often these are sent to the School for distribution via email, but most can also be found in the University's daily Newsletter, Today@Dal, as well as on the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) website.
