NRC student employment program

Join our team for an inspiring challenge

The NRC Student Employment Program provides students with fulfilling career‑related experience in research and development, library sciences, communications, marketing and other areas. We also have opportunities within our various branches or in support of our Industrial Research Assistance Program.

Our program offers students a challenging and intellectually stimulating environment, while providing them with access to superior equipment, facilities and expertise. We offer positions in NRC research facilities located across Canada. Each term lasts for approximately 16 weeks (4 months) and work can occur full time during a non‑academic semester or part time during an academic semester. Salaries are based on the number of academic semesters a student has completed.
