- Individualized Interdisciplinary Studies in Graduate Studies
Postdoctoral Fellows are valued members of the university community.
As a postdoctoral fellow, you will be able to broaden your research expertise, build associations with established researchers and strengthen your publication record, thereby enhancing your future employment opportunities. You have the opportunity to make significant contributions to your chosen field, the University, faculty researchers, and graduate students.
What makes a Postdoctoral Fellow?
You will have completed a doctoral degree, normally within the previous five years, and you are planning to undertake additional advanced research at Simon Fraser University. You will be working in association with one or more SFU faculty members for a limited period of time, usually one to three years.
