Work spaces for doctoral students
In September, the Operations Coordinator or the Academic Assistant sends an e-mail to ask doctoral students if they are interested in sharing a work space. If they are interested, they must let the IFGS Secretariat know, in writing. The matching of doctoral students to a workstation is done randomly mixing different cohorts in each shared PhD room.
Work spaces for master’s students
Early September, the Academic Assistant sends an e-mail to all M.A. students to inform them of the new door code for the M.A. study rooms. Please note that these study rooms are on the basis of “first come/first serve”. A student takes any available workstations for several hours but must absolutely clear that station at the end of the day.
Teaching and research assistantships
A month before the start of the semester, the Operations Coordinator or the Academic Assistant will inform students of the posting dates for teaching assistantships. Students must consult the on the University of Ottawa Human Resources' website. Postings will be up for 10 working days. The research assistantships positions are posted at any time on the University of Ottawa Human Resources' website.
Please note that students who receive an admission's scholarship must complete an electronic application since they are guaranteed a TA or RA position by their unit. We assume that scholarship holders who do not submit an electronic application for a Teaching assistantship are declining any position for that semester.
Graduate Students Association
Each year, in September, an executive is elected at a general assembly. Positions are open to all Feminist and Gender Studies graduate students. During the year, the Association represents graduate students at different levels in the University (at Institute meetings, the TA union SFCP/CUPE 2626, as well as the Graduate Student Association at the University of Ottawa).
