Scholars are appointed to a two-year research program, becoming part of a global network of leading researchers pursuing answers to some of the most difficult challenges facing the world today. You’ll forge new collaborations with mentors and colleagues from diverse disciplines. Experts will help you hone your leadership and communication skills to prepare you to be an influential leader within academia and beyond.
Applicants can be from anywhere in the world, but you must hold a PhD or equivalent degree and be within your first five years of a full-time academic appointment. Your research must align with the themes of an eligible CIFAR research program (see guidelines for the 2016 themes).
Two-year appointments beginning September 1 each year.
