Postdoctoral Fellowships at NRC Canada
What is the program?
The NRC is excited to announce a new initiative to bring up to ten postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) to work alongside our internationally recognized research leaders. The program will offer PDFs access to unique world-class facilities and the opportunity to work alongside multi-disciplinary teams of expert researchers and technicians on projects of critical importance to Canada. PDFs will carry out research on innovative research projects, with opportunities for career development (publications and/or industry interaction).
PDFs will be offered appointments to the staff of the National Research Council on a term basis and will be offered salaries and benefits currently available to Research Officers. Salaries commensurate with experience are taxable and subject to other deductions. As a guide, the current annual PhD recruiting rate is $64,437. In addition PDFs will be allocated a travel fund to support their work.
Applications are due by April 23, 2017 with awards announced by May 12, 2017. Successful fellows may commence their award anytime from July 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017.
Applications will be reviewed by the NRC PDF Steering Committee. The committee will consult with project sponsors to select candidates based on their academic excellence, qualification for the project, and their fit with their project supervisor.
