Post-doctoral Training

Post-doctoral fellows play an essential role in our research programs, and are mentored towards their future career goals by our senior scientists. In Canada, scientists are considered “trainee post-docs” for the first five years after being awarded their doctorate; during this time, they are eligible for a variety of lucrative national and provincial salary awards. Applicants interested in applying to our post-doctoral training program should be within 5 years of obtaining their PhD.
