Current Opportunities

Co-op Positions with the School of Graduate Studies

The SGS is hiring 3 students from September 2021 to April 2022. Ideally, in line with the University of Lethbridge’s re-opening plan and public health guidelines, students will be working on campus at the SGS office. However, students should be prepared to work remotely on their own computer if need be. 

These are co-op positions. This will be a full-time commitment, meaning students will take a break from courses and GA duties while on a work term. International students are required to already be active in the co-op program and have secured a valid co-op work permit.
