We expect that PhD students will be most interested in (and most attractive to employers in) the following fields: communications / public relations, academic administration, governmental and non-governmental organization (NGO) research positions, training management, and project management. Co-op employers gear their offers specifically to short-term projects. A reasonable percentage of the postings will be in other cities, so you will have more employment options if you are able to relocate. The Arts Co-op Program already offers graduate Co-op programs through the UBC iSchool (Library / Archival studies) and UBC Master of Public Policy and Global Affairs (MPPGA), and is recruiting additional employers interested in PhD students from English and History. A number of employers are already very interested in hiring English and History PhD students.
As a co-op student, you get the experience of looking for and applying to positions which might be interesting to you from the Co-op Jobs Database. Co-op organizes the interviews for you, and employers decide who they want to hire.
