National Research Council of Canada (NRC)
NRC has announced a new initiative to bring up to ten postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) to work alongside their 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.
Fellowships will be for two years contingent on satisfactory progress achieved during the first year.
Candidates should have obtained a PhD (or equivalent) within the past three years (PhD received on or after July 1, 2014) or expect to complete their PhD by September, 2017. To be eligible, a candidate will be required to submit their CV, three publications, a statement of interest for each project to which they wish to apply, and send the names of three references with contact information.
Fellows will work in a lab under the direct supervision of an NRC researcher.
Successful fellows may commence their award anytime from July 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Applications are due by April 23, 2017 with awards announced by May 12, 2017.
