Post-doctoral fellows and students are active participants in the vitality of SHERPA’s academic endeavours. Their research work makes a significant contribution to the expertise developed in each of the three axes of the research programme. Many research interns in Quebec and internationally have chosen SHERPA. It provides them with a plural framework encouraging an inter-disciplinary approach. Networking and mutual support across diverse modalities is also encouraged.
Students are welcomed to participate in SHERPA’s ongoing training activities, such as séminaires méthodologiques, held four times a year. The monthly team meetings also represent a privileged space for students to present their research results and get feedback from peers, researchers and the team. Financial support, in the form of research grants, is also offered to some students (SHERPA annual grant competition).
