The Kidney Foundation of Canada – Krescent Post -Doctoral Fellowship

A KRESCENT program Post-Doctoral Fellowship is an “in-training” award intended for applicants with a PhD, MD or equivalent degree. The objective is to attract and foster young investigators to initiate and/or continue training in kidney research.

An awardee may not be in receipt of another major personnel award at the same time as holding the Post-Doctoral Fellowship from the KRESCENT program. However, the KRESCENT program will consider approving supplemental funding if a minor stipend has been provided from a local or provincial funding agency.


Applicants must be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants at the time of submission of their application.


The annual stipend is $ 65,000 (MD or equivalent degree) or $ 55,000 (Ph.D. without a MD or equivalent degree) without benefits. Successful applicants are expected to organize their own benefits with the host institution.

Stipends are valued in Canadian dollars and are taxable. It is expected that 50% of the award will be contributed by the KRESCENT Program and 50% will be contributed by the host institution.
