Students and post-doctoral fellows are integral to York University's research success. They are involved in a variety of research projects across York's Faculties and Departments.
Research experience could introduce you to the passion of a lifetime while providing a unique experience to add to your resume or CV. Undergraduate and graduate students can access research opportunities through their Departments and Faculties and through York's 27 research centres and institutes.
If you're an undergraduate student, talk to your academic advisor and professors about their current research and how it relates to your interests. Visit their Web sites and faculty profiles to see whether they’re involved with any of York’s research centres and institutes. Ask if they have any suggestions about where and how you might get involved. They may be able to provide introductions to people researching areas of interest to you.
If you're a graduate student with research-related questions, contact your supervisor, graduate program director or the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Funding opportunities, internships, and scholarships for student research are available from a number of external organizations. Visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ website for a list of internal and external award programs.
Undergraduate students may participate in the Research at York (RAY) program, which gives eligible undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in research projects with faculty members and/or fellow students, while receiving compensation at a competitive rate (for examples, see YFile Oct. 3, 2007 and Apr. 7, 2008).
