Undergraduate Summer Positions

The McDonald Institute has two undergraduate jobs available for summer of 2019, made available through the Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP). The first is a Research & Education/Outreach role working with a faculty member and the Education and Outreach Officer. The second is a Financial Assistant role working with the Finance Officer.

Summer Research & Outreach Fellow: Reporting to the Education & Outreach (E&O) Officer, each McDonald Institute Summer Research and Outreach Fellow (MI Fellow) will be responsible for both research, and research tools training of high school students. 50% of their time will be in progressing a research project with an MI faculty, with the intent to produce or contribute to a scientific paper. Their other 50% of time will be initially co-developing, and then fully implementing a summer school that would meet with a cohort of 5-8 high school students, selected from applications. The students in the cohort would be the McDonald Institute Summer Scholars (MI Scholars). The MI Fellow, working with their research supervisor and E&O Officer would give the MI Scholars a sequence of introductory content material, skills training (computing, theory, experimental design, data entry, report writing), and include a scaled-down, entry-level version of the research project the MI Fellow is pursuing. The summer would conclude with each of the MI Scholars presenting to the department and interested public on their work over the term of the summer camp. This would be followed by each MI Fellow presenting their research project to the department and interested public. More information can be found here.

 

Student Financial Assistant: Reporting to the Finance Officer, the Student Financial Assistant will make important contributions to i) the budgeting and reporting process (ii) strengthen controls to ensure compliance and audit preparedness of the institute (iii) Staff training (iv) Documenting standard operating procedures and best practices (v) Integrated reporting systems covering the funding agency, management and partners. The Student Financial Assistant will act as an essential financial support to the McDonald Institute.
