Research Co-Op Students and Research Placement Summer Students

We, at INTREPID Lab (formerly Nicotine Dependence Service), 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 INTREPID scientist, who will determine the student's project. 

If you are a student at UTSC, contact the Employer Development Coordinator:

If you are a student enrolled at a post-secondary institution and interested in a summer student research placement, please check back soon for our Summer 2024 opportunities. You may also consider other avenues of applying such as through opportunities we may have through the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto’s Summer Undergraduate Research Program.
