Research Workstations

The Department of Pediatrics has research workstations on the 4th floor of the Alberta Children's Hospital. Workstations are assigned to faculty members on an annual basis, for use by research staff. 

Faculty members can also request temporary space at other times of the year by completing an off-cycle space request. The Department of Pediatrics will attempt to provide temporary space if available. 

Annual Workstation Allocation

Faculty members must fill out a workstation request/renewal each year, and provide information on grant funding and research staff full-time equivalents (FTE).

The request/renewal process typically takes place in June/July, with assignments distributed for the start of the academic year (September). 

The number of requests for research workstations far exceeds the number of desks available. As a result, the Department tries to accommodate requests while being equitable.

CURRENT WORKSTATIONS ARE ALLOCATED UNTIL 2021.

*Please note -- the annual workstation allocation period is suspended until further notice. Requests for space can be made on an ad-hoc basis via the off-cycle space request form.

Annual Workstation Request

Off-Cycle Space Requests

In some cases, temporary workstation assignments can be arranged. 

In order to accommodate off-cycle space requests, we ask that faculty members notify the Department when their research workstations become available for one month or more. If a staff member is taking a leave or an extended absence we would like to make their desk available for use, temporarily. 

Please complete the off-cycle space form below to notify us of an available workstation or to request a temporary workstation.
