Resources Available to Graduate Students

Teaching and Research Assistantships

A month before the start of the semester, the Coordinator of Operations or the Academic Assistant will inform students of the posting dates for teaching assistantships. Students must consult the postings on the School’s website.  Courses offered in French are posted on the French site and courses offered in English are posted on the English site. Postings will be up for at least 10 days and only candidates who are offered a position will be contacted by e-mail.  The research assistantships positions can be posted at any time on the School’s website – although we try and post them all at the same time, when possible.

Please note that students who receive an admissions scholarship must complete a job application form since they are guaranteed a TA or RA position.  We assume that scholarship holders who do not submit an application for a TA are declining any position for that semester.


For assistance, contact the Social Sciences Librarian:  Patrick Labelle,, 613-562-5800 extension 7185, FSS 2010.

Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association in Psychology represents all graduate students registered in a program at the School of Social Work.

Each year, in September, an executive is elected at a general assembly.  Positions are open to all PSY graduate students.  During the year, the Association represents graduate students at different levels in the University (at School meetings, the TA union SFCP/CUPE 2626, as well as the Graduate Student Association at the University of Ottawa).
