Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships
The purpose of the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships is to build world-class research capacity by recruiting top-tier Canadian and international postdoctoral researchers at an internationally competitive level of funding. Seventy fellowships will be awarded each year through CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC. The program is unique in its emphasis on the synergy between applicants and research institutions. The emphasis is on the excellence of the candidate as well as the quality of the research environment and given the limited number of fellowships, this is a highly competitive program. Evidence of the quality of the research environment is required as is an indication of the level of institutional support that will be made available to the nominee.
