University of Alberta Research Experience

(U ARE) CANADA: Call for Research Project Internships
Deadline November 30, 2013

The U ARE program is an internship program allowing senior undergraduate students from key international partner institutions and Canada’s top universities to conduct research at UAlberta under the supervision of a faculty member. The program is coordinated by University of Alberta International (UAI).

U ARE Canada is open to Canadian senior undergraduate students (Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada). The Canadian students gain hands-on, practical experience in their academic discipline and receive a stipend: up to $6,000. Professors post research projects which students apply for. Some research projects have been received, however the goal is to receive 55 more research projects. Currently, UAI is accepting research proposals from faculty members for the U ARE CANADA program. The projects can be from various academic backgrounds. A professor can post more than one project and can take more than one intern.

UAlberta Professor’s Financial commitment to intern:

U ARE only requires a $2,000 commitment per intern from the UAlberta faculty member;
the remainder of the stipend ($4, 000 is funded by FGSR). The stipend will be pro-rated accordingly for internships less than four months.

How to submit a research project on the database:

UAlberta faculty members from all fields of study are encouraged to submit a proposal on the database to host a research intern from Canada by clicking on the hyperlinked heading below. This will take you to the program website. To access the database, go under the section “For UAlberta Faculty”; please click on SUBMIT A PROPOSAL ONLINE. Deadline for professors to post a project is November 30, 2013.

Killam Annual Professorships 2014-15 – Applications Now Open
Deadline: February 14, 2014

Lorne Babiuk, VP (Research) has sent a notification that applications for the 2014-2015 Killam Annual Professorships are now being accepted:

Although the process is one of self-nomination, your Faculty Evaluation Committee may want to consider encouraging a diversity of faculty members to apply. It is the intention that these professorships are accessible to relatively new and junior staff members, as well as those who are more established academics. In the past there has been an imbalance in the gender distribution of applicants, and we encourage a diversity of applications from all qualified women and men, including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.

For complete information on the terms of reference and application procedure as well as the application form for the 2014-2015 Killam Annual Professorships, click HERE.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 4:30 pm, February 14, 2014.
