Academic Work

Research Assistant (graduate)

Are you a registered art history graduate student of high academic standing who is entering your second year of study? Are you keen to gain hands-on experience at a professional public gallery? If yes, then you should apply for CUAG’s Research Assistant (RA) position!

Every year, we offer an RA position to a Carleton student. It involves 10 hours of work each week, during the fall and winter terms. The salary is equivalent to a TA position, but you cannot be a TA and RA at the same time. 

As the RA, you will work closely with CUAG staff members on exhibition, research, education and collection-based projects. 

You do not need to have a specific area of subject expertise to apply. If you are motivated, curious, hard-working and responsible, we’re keen to work with you. 

To apply, please send a one-page cover letter and your resumé to Sandra Dyck by 28 June 2024. We will interview shortlisted candidates. The Faculty of Graduate and Research Studies will make the offer to the successful candidate.

Practicum placement (undergraduate or graduate)

Are you interested in getting academic credit and hands-on experience at a professional public gallery, at the same time? If yes, then a practicum placement at CUAG is a great opportunity for you!

We offer practicum placements to Carleton undergraduate and graduate students, during the fall and winter terms. Students work on research, exhibition, writing, communications and education projects.

We are open to hosting students from diverse departments, not just art history. If you are motivated, curious, hard-working and responsible, we’d love to work with you. 

To propose a practicum placement at CUAG, please speak to your departmental practicum supervisor at the beginning of the term. They will get in touch with us and we will meet with you to discuss potential opportunities.

We welcome applications from those who contribute to the further diversification of the University including, but not limited to: women; visible minorities; First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples; persons with disabilities; and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity and expressions.
