NSIRA’s Students Program

Our students are a critical part of our success.  We do our best to involve them in all aspects of our mandate delivery.  NSIRA hires Canadian university students through the Government of Canada’s Federal Student Work Experience Program and directly through university co-op programs.  Typically, we initiate student recruitment processes around 8 months in advance to allow sufficient time for top-secret security clearances to be issued. Some student positions may be held at a lower security classification and outside the Capital region. 

Our primary interest is in degree programs and specializations that complement NSIRA’s review mandate, including:

  • fields related to national security, intelligence and defense, social science programs with research components;
  • law ; articling opportunities will provide you with the opportunity to develop the essential knowledge, skills and experience for practicing law;
  • specialties in computer science, computer engineering, data science, information studies, and cybersecurity;
  • research-intensive humanities (history, political science, etc.), the digital humanities, and interdisciplinary fields where research plays a major role; and
  • administrative roles (administration, human resources and finance)
