CANSSI offers up to two Postdoctoral Fellowships per year. Calls for these fellowships go out in mid-July for positions beginning on April 1 of the following year. Applications are due on Jan. 31.
These Postdoctoral Fellowships are available to candidates working in CANSSI member institutions. Candidates should have received their PhD within 3 years of the start of their term, 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. The remainder of the postdoctoral stipend (at least a matching amount) should be 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 of the designated year; the funds must be paid by the end of March of the following year.
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 complete package can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
