Research Co-Op Students and Research Placement Summer Students

We, at the Nicotine Dependence Services (NDS), accept undergraduate co-op students from the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC), and summer students from recognized post-secondary institutions. If you are a UTSC co-op student, you must be enrolled in a recognized co-op education program and will earn credit towards your degree or diploma. If you are a summer student, you must be enrolled in a recognized post-secondary program. Students will be supervised by an assigned NDS scientist, who will determine the student's project. A call for applications will be posted on this website during January of each year for available positions over the summer of that year (e.g. January 2019 postings for Summer 2019 applications).​
