Regular (administrative) Internships: Two Positions Available
Lakehead University has two NOHFC administrative-related internships (out of its quota of two administrative-related placements) available through the NOHFC Northern Ontario Internship Program. The internal deadline for the submission of regular internship applications to the Office of Research (firstname.lastname@example.org) is August 7, 2015. If more than two applications are received, an internal competition will need to be held to determine which two applications will be submitted to the NOHFC. Final decisions will be made by the Executive Team Working Group.
Under the administrative call, preference will be given to applications from Lakehead University administrative units.
