Computing expertise available
Students from the Department of Computer Science internship option are
available to work on campus on program-relevant projects. The internship
is an extended period of work in which senior computer science students
obtain experience directly related to their academic program and career
objectives. Internships can start at the beginning of any semester (i.e.
September, January, or May) and have a duration of eight, 12, or 16 months.
The flexible nature of the program would allow employing researchers to
suit the internship to project requirements. For further information,
including university internship rates, contact Paul Smith at ext. 2419
or by e-mail at email@example.com.

Canada Council for the Arts
The Canada Council for the Arts has announced the creation of two initiatives
in the arts and sciences in partnership with Natural Sciences and Engineering
Research Council (NSERC) and the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).
The purpose of these agreements is to encourage research collaborations
between artists and scientists or engineers. The New Media Initiative
partnership between NSERC and the Canada Council is directed at new media
artists and scientists who want to collaborate on projects involving an
artistic component and a scientific or engineering component. Projects
must involve the creation of original independent new media art. Artistic
productions intended for the cultural industry of commercial new media
are not eligible. Projects must be scientifically sound and promise to
generate new knowledge or a new technology or to apply existing knowledge/technology
in an innovative manner. The application deadline is March 1, 2002. For
further information, see www.canadacouncil.ca.
The Artist-In Residence for Research Fellowships (AIRes), a partnership
between NRC and the Canada Council, will support independent established
artists in any artistic discipline who wish to undertake research within
one of the NRC institutes, in Ottawa or other parts of the country. Fellowships
in the amount of $75,000 per year will be awarded for a two-year period.
Details of this partnership will be available on the Canada Councils
Web site in January 2002. For more information on this program please
call (613) 566-4414 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
