Postdoctoral Fellowships

What is the program?

The Postdoctoral Fellowships program will offer promising young scientists 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. Postdoctoral fellows will carry out research and development activities on innovative research projects, with opportunities for career development (publications and/or industry interaction). Fellows will work in a lab under the direct supervision of an NRC researcher.

Postdoctoral fellows will normally be offered a two year term appointment to the staff of the National Research Council and will receive a salary and benefits currently available to Research Officers. Salary is commensurate with the selected candidates's experience, is taxable and subject to other deductions. As a guide, the minimum salary for a new PhD graduate is $64,437. In addition postdoctoral fellows will be allocated a travel fund to support their work.
