Opportunities with CEEEC

Graduate Bursaries in the Humanities

Three $5K bursaries are available for students entering Laurentian’s interdisciplinary Humanities M.A. Program or Ph.D. in Human Studies in September 2016. Successful students will be given the honorary title “CEEEC Graduate Fellow,” and they will conduct independent thesis research under the supervision of (one or both of) CEEEC’s philosophers – Dr. Brett Buchanan and Dr. Gillian Crozier.

Interested candidates will need to gain entry to the relevant academic program with a research proposal on a topic related to the ongoing research and expertise of Buchanan or Crozier. We are also especially interested in students with training in both Humanities and Biology, and whose graduate thesis projects could be co-supervised by a CEEEC philosopher and a CEEEC ecologist.

The bursaries will be awarded at Crozier and Buchanan’s discretion, and on a competitive basis. For successful candidates, this funding will be in addition to the standard funding packages offered to incoming graduate students in these programs. The bursaries are funded through a generous SSHRC Aid to Small Universities Grant awarded to CEEEC for 2014-2017.

Thesis Opportunities in Biology

CEEEC’s ecological researchers – Drs. Albrecht Schulte-Hostedde, David Lesbarrères, and Jacqueline Litzgus – are often on the lookout for talented graduate and undergraduate students to join their labs. (Please check their lab websites for details on ongoing projects.) These positions present opportunities for students to perform their own research for a Ph.D. dissertation, MSc. thesis, or 4th-year thesis project in a stimulating and collaborative environment.

Applicants should be able to:

  • Work outdoors, regardless of weather, bugs, etc.
  • Follow an often-unpredictable schedule
  • Work independently in the outdoors
  • Relocate to (or remain on-location at) the Laurentian Campus and in the greater Sudbury area
