Part-time Research Opportunities
  • Rosenstadt Research Development Program

    The Summer Research Program has been a fixture at Bloomberg Nursing Research for a quarter of a century. 2019 marked the final iteration of this program. In Fall 2021, the Rosenstadt Research Development Program launched. The program is linked with the University of Toronto’s work-study program (https://cln.utoronto.ca/students/wspublicstudents.htm).

    The Rosenstadt Research Development Program (RRDP) at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing provides funded research training opportunities to undergraduate and graduate (MN) nursing students during the academic year. Nursing students have the opportunity to be embedded within a faculty member’s program of research from September to February, in addition to participating in formalized research development sessions. This is a part-time research opportunity. Accepted students will be expected to work up to a maximum of 200 hours over this time (roughly 10-12 hours per week).

    Student Eligibility: The student must be enrolled for the fall and winter term in either the BScN Program (Year Two), or the Master of Nursing Program. PhD students and BScN program Year One students are not eligible for the RDDP. The student must be enrolled in at least a 40% course load continuously from September to April, totalling at least 2.0 credits (minimum would be 0.5 credits in one session and 1.5 credits in the other). International undergraduate and graduate students studying on a full-time basis continuously from September to April, subject to federal government requirements (see Government of Canada website for rules and regulations) are eligible. Students may only accept one position.
