Liber Ero Fellowships will support exceptional post-doctoral researchers from any country based at a Canadian institution doing research on pressing conservation issues for Canada. Eligible scholars will be exceptional researchers, who have received their PhD prior to the start of the fellowship. Applicants should propose to be based at a Canadian academic or conservation institution, but researchers from any country are eligible for consideration. Applicants will identify a mentorship team of at least one academic and at least one conservation practitioner mentor. Applicants are encouraged to identify the mentor team early in their proposal to foster a meaningful collaboration.

The fellowship will consist of 2 years of support (the second year contingent upon satisfactory progress) with a $55,000/yr stipend and a $15,000 annual travel and research budget.

Fellows will be selected based on evidence of their success and emergence as leaders in a conservation-relevant research field, as well as on the merit of their proposed research and mentorship team. Research proposals must demonstrate a candidate‚Äôs capacity to identify a key conservation challenge and must describe how the proposed work will contribute to solving the challenge. The quality and appropriateness of the mentoring team will also be a key consideration, and the proposal should highlight how the team will collaborate to address the conservation problem. 

The application deadline for the 2015 fellows is November 1, 2014.
