Student Research Opportunities

Every year, many students completing their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year enhance their education by spending a summer working for faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as a student research assistant. If you are interested in working with a faculty member, information about our faculty members can be found here, and their various areas of research is available here. Potential supervisors will be able to give project descriptions to students and will be available to students that want to come and talk about their research. 

Students who wish to apply for the NSERC USRA (Natural Science and Engineering Research Council Undergraduate Student Research Assistantship), Irving Mentorship Program: Student Summer Research Internship, and University Council for Research, and NSHRF Scotia Scholar awards should visit the Undergraduate Research Page to review the deadlines. These provide a significant amount of funding for students of high academic standing. Students with an 80+ average who are interested in working in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics or in the USRA Internships should contact a potential supervisor by the above deadline, as there are a few steps to preparing the application that cannot be done at a moment’s notice.
