NRC Student Employment Program
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 the NRC statements on the cyber intrusion.
As a result, we cannot accept job applications online or by email. However, once the careers pages are back online, we will be reposting vacant positions with revised closing dates. We apologize for any inconvenience.
What is the program?
The NRC Student Employment Program provides students with practical career-related experience in research and development, library sciences, communications, marketing and other areas.
The Student Employment Program offers students a challenging and intellectually stimulating environment, while providing them with access to superior equipment, facilities and expertise. Positions are offered in NRC portfolios, branches and IRAP. Each term lasts for approximately sixteen weeks (four months) and work can occur full-time during a non-academic semester and part-time (up to 20 hours/week) during an academic semester. Salaries are based on the number of academic semesters a student has completed.
Who is eligible?
You are eligible for the NRC Student Employment Program if you have obtained a High School diploma (or grade 12 equivalent), possess a minimum "B" academic average or equivalent (preference may be given to candidates with a "B+" academic average). (equivalencies can be found on the back of your transcript), you are studying at a recognized educational institution and are returning to full-time studies in the next semester, and are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada. Additionally, foreign national students who meet the eligibility requirements, are studying in recognized and eligible Canadian educational institution and possess a valid Off-Campus Work Permit may also apply. For more detailed requirements and information on this possibility, please refer to the information found at Citizenship and Immigration Canada (Work Off Campus).
