The HEC Lab
The HEC Lab focuses on reconciliatory, respectful, reciprocal, and responsible community-based participatory research. The Lab is committed to equity-oriented projects that apply social, environmental, and health lenses, and our work comes together through intersections of cultures, places, power/resistance, and relational ethics using innovative, decolonizing research methodologies. The HEC lab is equipped with a wide range of field equipment (audio/video recording, photovoice, and digital story technologies), qualitative data analysis and transcription software, as well as common and individual internet-connected computer work stations. The HEC Lab strives to cultivate the next generation of critically-engaged scholars by providing significant and meaningful research training opportunities for highly qualified personnel.
The HEC Lab is always looking to recruit prospective graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, undergraduate honours students, and volunteers. As a member of the HEC Lab, you will have the opportunity to work and collaborate with a cadre of peers with research interests just like yours. This includes participating in HEC Lab meetings that focus on building academic and professional skills, such as conference presentations, grant writing workshops, developing research projects, and collectively working to contribute to other projects going on in the Lab to ensure all of our outputs are of exceptional quality.
