Office of Research Services

Graduate students are important members of Brock’s research community. You bring creativity, insight, knowledge, innovation and energy to Brock’s intensive research environment.

Recent statistics show that Brock experienced one of the highest growth rates in research funding among all Ontario universities. Your work and your contribution as partners of our research teams are raising Brock’s profile as a centre of discovery and innovation.

Brock’s Office of Research Services (ORS) supports researchers in a number of ways.

Information and training is a priority for us. You can participate alongside faculty in a comprehensive suite of information sessions, seminars and workshops. We have specialists available to our researchers in areas such as contract management, technology and knowledge transfer, ethics, animal care, hazardous materials, communications and financial accountability.

Another important role for us is to help connect Brock research activities with partners in the external community, industry and government agencies. Our success will create opportunities for you to be involved in exciting international research and development projects led by Brock researchers.

We’re here to support a research career throughout your time in graduate school and beyond.
