Visiting fellows and postdoctoral fellows are examples of the kind of individuals who should be made Research Associates of the Frost Centre. Independent scholars can be also considered for these appointments. Recently graduated Trent Canadian Studies PhD students will normally be invited to be Frost Centre Research Associates.
- In keeping with the Guidelines from Trent's Committee on Academic Personnel (COAP), Research Associates will be appointed for a two year term, normally only renewable once.
- Research Associates need to demonstrate what they will be able to contribute to the intellectual life of the Frost Centre. They must be willing to give talks, contribute to graduate classes, and/or mentor graduate students on an informal basis.
- Research Associates would normally have a PhD and have demonstrated their potential to either maintain or develop a sustained research and publication record. Parallel qualifications can be considered.
- Research Associates will not sit on Frost Centre graduate student supervisory committees, save in very exceptional circumstances approved by the Director.
