Here’s an excerpt:

Nipissing Student Employment Opportunities

You’ll notice that there is a section for NuWorks Positions and another section for Non- NuWorks positions. You are only eligible for the NuWorks jobs if you can show financial need (usually if you have applied for OSAP, whether you got it or not). Unfortunately, that pretty much means you have to be an Ontario student. I’ll let you know if any other opportunities arise, but here are some that might interest you!

Student Research Assistant – Psychology

Student Lab Assistant – Neuroscience  

Student Assistant to Chair of Psychology 

Student Research Assistant – Neuroscience

These jobs usually pay minimum wage and are 10 hr/week for 18-20 weeks (job runs out when the money does). Deadline to apply is September 18, 2015.
