The Earth Sciences department faculty, postdocs and students are actively engaged in research that helps understanding our planet, from the geological processes that took place in the Earth’s accretion to the evolution of life.
Our graduate and undergraduate students benefit from our membership in the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre (OCGC), which is a joint research-intensive collaboration with the University of Ottawa and the Geological Survey. Students have the opportunity to work closely with OCGC members and their laboratories using cutting-edge instrumentation.
There are multiple ways to get involved, including paid positions, volunteer work, summer research positions and research course credits. We invite you to explore the different faculty research interests and find ways in which you can become part of the OCGC research team.
