Research Opportunities

Summer Research Studentship

The MMRC offers paid 16-week summer research studentships to Level 1 and/or Level 2 McMaster MEP students. Students work on a specific research project under the mentorship of an MMRC Scientist, participate in weekly midwifery research team meetings, and acquire research skills and experience for building careers as midwifery researchers. Students receiving the award are expected to spend 35 hours/week working on their research project and to deliver a report to their assigned supervisor at the completion of their project, and will ideally have the opportunity to be involved in the preparation of a manuscript to be submitted for publication. Details about the application process will be shared with students by February each year.
