Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

 

This program offers promising scientists access to world-class facilities and the opportunity to work alongside multidisciplinary teams of expert researchers and technicians on projects of critical importance to Canada.

What is the program

Postdoctoral fellows will normally be offered a 2-year term appointment to the staff of the NRC and will receive a salary and benefits currently available to research officers. Salary is commensurate with the selected candidate's experience, is taxable and subject to other deductions. As a guide, the current annual PhD recruiting rate is typically at the AsRO level. Please see the RO salary scale for the current rates. In addition postdoctoral fellows will be allocated a travel fund to support their work.

Who is eligible

  • Candidates should have obtained a PhD (or equivalent) within the past 3 years (PhD received on or after July 1, 2019) or expect to complete their PhD within 6 months of appointment
  • Preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada
