Are you an administrative professional who wants to get involved in the exciting research field of astronomy and astrophysics? We need you!

Trottier Institute for Research on Exoplanets and Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic
The Trottier Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx) includes a growing team of around 60 people from the Université de Montréal, McGill University, Bishop’s University, Université Laval and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, all working on various research programs on the study of exoplanets and other related areas of stellar astrophysics.
In addition to its research program, the Institute also has a dynamic education and public outreach programme led by professional science communicators. The iREx benefits from a strong partnership with the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic (OMM), which includes a 1.6-m diameter telescope, the largest on the East Coast of North America, used by professional astronomers from Quebec and elsewhere, as well as an experimental astrophysics laboratory that designs state-of-the-art astronomical instruments intended for the largest observatories, on the ground and in space.
Under the direction of the Deputy Director of the iREx and OMM, you will be responsible for assisting the iREx and OMM research team in the administrative management of their projects.
