Employment and award programs


[updated: 2014‑09‑11] Please note that access to NRC careers pages, including the job alert service, is limited or unavailable due to a cyber intrusion on the IT infrastructure of the National Research Council of Canada. For more information, see NRC statements: Cyber intrusion at the National Research Council.

As a result, we cannot accept job applications by any method at this time. However, once the careers pages are back online, we will be reposting vacant positions with revised closing dates. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Who will help NRC meet the challenges of the future? Talented and inspired students, graduates, and researchers - it could be you!

Canada and NRC are both going in the same direction: ahead. For more than 9 decades, NRC has pushed the limits of science and technology to benefit Canadians. You too could be part of this team!

NRC offers training, coaching, mentoring, access to state-of-the-art facilities, and opportunity to work alongside top-notch researchers and research teams.

NRC sponsors a number of programs to provide students the opportunity to develop their skills and expertise, while at the same time, gaining valuable experience working with research groups or leaders in Canadian government laboratories and research institutions.
