External Award: NRC Postdoctoral Fellowships Program

May 07, 2018

The National Research Council's (NRC) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers promising young scientists the opportunity to work alongside our internationally recognized research leaders. Our program provides access to unique world-class facilities and the opportunity to work alongside multi-disciplinary teams of expert researchers and technicians on projects of critical importance to Canada. PDFs will carry out research on innovative research projects, with opportunities for career development (publications and/or industry interaction). We have 12 projects just announced.

PDFs will be offered appointments to the staff of the National Research Council on a term basis and will be offered salaries and benefits currently available to researchers. As a guide, the current annual Ph.D. recruiting rate is $64,437. In addition PDFs will be allocated a travel fund to support their work.

Application deadline is May 31, 2018 11:59 PM (ET).
