Morning Star Lodge Employment

Part-Time Student Research Assistant

Description: The Morningstar Lodge, established by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and supported and maintained by HSNRI, is a lab that embodies mentorship. It is a student training lab that fosters a team environment where undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral trainees are supervised by Dr. Bourassa and her academic team. Elders are also actively involved in guiding every research project as they play a critical role in the lab and are always available to student trainees. Innovative Indigenous research methodologies are blended with Western methodologies to exemplify the "Two-Eyed Seeing Model" in the lab. Mentorship in the lab happens not only between academic supervisor/student but also between students as well as between Elders and students, community members and students and, especially, between community members and academics. 

Indigenous Community-Based Research is based on four core values (sometimes called the “4 Rs”): respect, responsibility, reciprocity and relevance. Our model embodies these values, as we understand that our diverse projects are relevant not only to our community partners but to all involved. 

We are seeking a part-time graduate student to assist with a variety of Indigenous community-based health projects.
