My colleague and I have a couple of GlobalLink internship projects available in the City of Toronto at Ryerson University. If the student qualifies, the program is really a wonderful opportunity. (see details here: 
Applications are due: Sept 24th, 2015. Please have the prospective student search for a project listed under my and my colleague's name (Dr. Stephanie Melles; Dr. Claire Oswald). The intern would work on data analysis (GIS and R) looking at water quality data related to road salt inputs in an urban stream. They would receive training in the work to be performed, but should have excellent undergraduate-level skills in stats and data analysis - some field work may be involved. My colleague Dr. Oswald has a related project with more emphasis on field work. If possible, they should apply to both.
