Job Posting: The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) is pleased to announce competition for trainee awards
Trainee awards are one of the cornerstones of MSFHR’s investment in building British Columbia’s capacity for world-class research. These awards provide up to three years of salary support to help highly qualified post-doctoral fellows develop their skills. By supporting the training of young investigators, BC is well positioned to retain them as future health research leaders. Since 2001, MSFHR has granted 1,227 trainee awards worth nearly $39 million.
The 2015 trainee award is open to applicants who are eligible to hold a post-doctoral fellow position at a BC-based host institution for the duration of the Research Trainee – Post-Doctoral Fellowship Award. Host institutions must have a signed memorandum of understanding with MSFHR.
Competition guidelines will be posted to MSFHR's website on November 28. Applicants will be able to access the MSFHR ApplyNet system in early 2015. A formal announcement of the competition’s launch will be circulated on November 28. To ensure you receive this notification, subscribe to MSFHR’s mailing list.
