Opening: EDI in Engineering

*** Recruiting (Ongoing until filled) *** 

 Please read the following carefully.

I am currently looking to recruit one (1) graduate student (MASc) to undertake research on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) considerations in engineering. Specifically, this will entail how members from the LGBTQ2S+ community, a community that has been categorized as equity-denied, fare within the context of the Canadian post-secondary education framework in engineering. 

The project will entail conducting literature review, conducting scientific surveys, and experimentation.

Requirements:

    • Must be self-motivated
    • Must have strong writing and communication skills.
    • Those from an equity-denied / equity-deserving group are strongly recommended to self-identify. This includes women, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, people who are part of LGBTQ2+ communities, religious minority groups, and racialized people.
When emailing, prospective students should compose a cover letter as text in their email.  The email should include the following:
    • Email subject stating: “Application for EDI Opening – LastName
    • your CGPA;
    • your research interests, and general interests;
    • list of peer-reviewed publications (if any);
    • funding situation and requirements;
    • your background, and relevant lived experiences, that you are willing to share with me;
    • relevant research skills and experience, and;
    • an up-to-date CV in .PDF format.

I will reply if there is a fit!

Please Note: Due to the volume of emails I receive, only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
