There are still a limited number of desks in shared study rooms available for graduate students, so the application process has been re-opened. There are no carrels or lockers available at this time.

Applications for desks will be given priority according to the criteria listed below. If your application is accepted then you will be contacted by email. Spaces should be assigned to successful applicants by the end of September.

Priority for space is given to graduate students who meet these criteria:

  • in the faculty of FASS or FPA;
  • without office space on campus; and
  • require a quiet work space close to library resources

If space permits, other graduate students will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

See the Graduate Study Spaces page for more information or go directly to the Graduate Study Space Application Form.

This monetary award of $1000.00 was established to support Carleton University graduate students in publishing research in open access journals.  The award recipients are:

Jennifer R. Whitson, PhD candidate, Sociology
“Rule making and rule breaking: Game development and the governance of emergent behaviour” from Fibreculture Journal (2010) Issue 16, Special Issue on Counterplay.

Philip Martin, Masters candidate, International Affairs
“Intervening for Peace? Dilemmas of Liberal Internationalism and Democratic Reconstruction in Afghanistan” from Journal of Military and Strategic Studies (Spring 2011) 13(3)

Lisa Neville, PhD candidate, Earth Science
“Seasonal environmental and chemical impact on the amoebian community composition in an oil sands reclamation wetland in Northern Alberta” from Palaeontologia Electronica (2010) 14(2)

Nikolai Chepelev, PhD candidate, Biology
“The NrF1 CNC-bZIP protein is regulated by the proteasome and activated by hypoxia” from PLoS ONE (2011) 6(12)

These papers will be submitted into Carleton’s new institutional repository CURVE, which collects, preserves and makes accessible Carleton’s digital research materials.  With over 30 applications, the Scholarly Communications selection committee was impressed with so many graduate students making their works more widely available in open access journals, thereby increasing the visibility and impact of their research in advancing knowledge and improving the global community

Congratulations!

The Scholar

Check out a new web site called “The Scholar” that features an innovative publishing initiative for graduate student research across all disciplines, and at all levels in the UK.

The idea is to highlight some of the great work undertaken within UK universities. It also will help students develop skills needed outside of the academic environment.

The team at The Scholar will be keeping everyone up to date on the development during the countdown to the launch of the first issue in September of 2012 via their blog! Check back often.
