There are a number of ways that students can complete a Trent Benthic Biomonitoring research project. You either need to be enrolled in a Trent University or Fleming course that offers CBR (current applicable courses at Trent include but are not limited to: ERSC 4830Y, BIOL 4400Y, and GEOG 4830Y).
You can apply to do an independent project under the supervision of a faculty member. Most of our independent projects commence at the beginning of each semester, but opportunities may be available at any time throughout the year.

You can complete a CBR project as your master’s thesis. A number of community-based projects are broad in scope, require a high level of academic skill and more time for completion. Review the project descriptions for proposals that suggest group work or graduate level work. If a project interests you, contact us directly to discuss. CBR is a unique opportunity to apply your research skills while also gaining valuable professional experience!
If you have any questions or want to discuss a project, contact us through email or via the contact window at the bottom of this page.
