This internship is an opportunity for students enrolled outside of physics to participate in astroparticle physics research over the summer 2023 term.
Students (college-level, undergraduate, or graduate) apply to work on a project with an astroparticle physicist that leverages their disciplinary knowledge to new spaces. Students receive $12,000 CAN for the experience and can work anywhere across Canada with a supervisor (i.e., faculty or post-doctoral fellow) whose research is based in astroparticle physics. Past interns have come from health sciences, computer sciences, education, and beyond. We are hopeful for new students from different disciplines will apply and bring their skills to the table!

This is a unique paid summer experience for students to participate in research-based positions that can help propel their academic careers forward, while also expanding opportunities during their degrees.
