Open only to Black and/or Indigenous recent graduates (graduated no earlier than Spring 2021)
position will be based in the Digital Preservation Unit. The resident
will be working with me, Guinsly Mondesir from Scholars Portal, and Kyla
Everall from Collections. Please feel free to write if you have
questions or want to know more about the position or residency program.
UTL early career residencies are new, so residents won't have a cohort
of alumni to look to for advice. But, we have a good team here and we're
big on supporting our early career colleagues. In terms of early career development, we offer professional expense and
research allowance funds (min $2000/yr for early career), minimum 14
research days/year, lots of committee opportunities, generous colleagues
who want to help you succeed, and the experience of working at the
largest research institute in Canada. If you know a new
Black or Indigenous graduate who is looking to get into preservation, please pass this on.
