If you are an undergraduate student who’d like to get research experience in an academic setting, you should consider applying for an Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA). Through these awards, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) subsidizes eligible professors to hire students to work on their research projects. The program creates interesting research-related jobs and gives you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience. How do you find USRA positions in the School of Health & Exercise Sciences? Take a look at the eligible professors in SHES and their area of research, and contact the person who you think best fits your interests. Here are some tips:
- Know what you are going to say: be prepared to talk about your interests, knowledge areas, and lab or volunteer experience. Familiarize yourself with the professor’s research subject so you can ask informed questions about it. This will show that you are genuinely interested in helping with the research.
- Bring a copy of your resume and unofficial transcripts.
- Familiarize yourself with the program rules and application procedures. http://www.nserc-crsng.gc.ca/OnlineServices-ServicesEnLigne/instructions/202/usra-iusra_eng.asp
