For the 2018-2019 year, up to two CANSSI Postdoctoral Fellowships will be awarded to suitable statistical sciences candidates working in CANSSI member institutions. Candidates should have received their PhD after March 31, 2015, and must have fulfilled all PhD requirements by the time of taking up the award. Postdoctoral trainees working on CANSSI Collaborative Research Team projects are not eligible.
For each fellowship, CANSSI will provide $22,500 of funding, plus required benefits, with the remainder of the postdoctoral stipend normally provided from the research grants of the nominating researcher and possibly other sources, such as Mitacs. A successful candidate will be designated a “CANSSI Postdoctoral Fellow” for a period of one year, starting any time between April 1 and November 30, 2018; the funds must be paid by the end of March 2019.
If you would like to nominate someone, please provide a letter of nomination for the candidate, outlining the research to be undertaken and the candidate’s suitability; a CV for the candidate; and a statement indicating the level of funding that will be provided by you or other sources. Please supply also two additional letters of reference. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2018.
Please send the nomination to firstname.lastname@example.org, by January 31, 2018.
