NEW NETWORK COORDINATOR

  • 'Uy' skweyul everyone! I want to thank everyone for supporting IMN-PN this year and congratulate all of the mentees for their hard work! I am currently transitioning to a new position and hope to cross paths with many of you in the future. We are pleased to welcome Tara Erb to her new position as network coordinator! She will be starting May 15th. ~ Maria
  • Wachay/Greetings everyone. My name is Tara Erb and I am very excited to become the new Network Coordinator for IMN-PN. I am Moose Cree from Moose Factory and French European, and I am very grateful to raise my family and study on the traditional lands of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEC peoples. I completed my BA in Sociology at the University of Victoria and I am now finishing my MA in Sociology. My research interests are in the field of Indigenous health, wellness and aging. I am also very passionate about education and teaching. Currently, my research focuses on cultural safety. I look forward to getting to know and working with everyone!

IMN-PN CURRENT RESEARCH EXPERIENCE OPPORTUNITIES

IMN-PN CALL FOR RESEARCH EXPERIENCES

  • Do you or your organization have any upcoming priority wellness-related research projects for which you require the assistance of an Indigenous research assistant/ student intern?
  • We are looking for opportunities for students! One of the funding opportunities available is the Research Experience Award, which provides $1,000-$2,000 (depending on level of study) to Indigenous students proposing to undertake a wellness-related research project initiated by and of interest to an Indigenous community or organization. These projects may involve, for instance, assisting with a community-level knowledge translation event, land-based research activity, community research engagement meeting, environmental scan or literature review. These research experiences are overseen by academic and community or organizational Mentors, who will provide guidance, supervision and mentorship to the Mentees.
  • If you are interested in hosting, supervising or mentoring a Mentee, please email: imnpn@uvic.ca. We would be happy to advertise any placements through our network!
  • The Research Experience Award will now be available on a rolling basis!
