The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program is designed to support world-class postdoctoral researchers. The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships are Canada’s most prestigious and highest valued award for postdoctoral researchers today. Researchers can take up the award at a Canadian university, or at a university outside of Canada (e.g. Australia).
The fellowship provides $70,000CAD per year, for two years.
Applicants to the 2017-2018 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships must have fulfilled all degree requirements for a PhD (or equivalent) or health professional degree between September 20, 2014 and September 30, 2018 (inclusively).
Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada, and foreign citizens are eligible to apply. Applicants who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada may only take up the fellowship at a Canadian institution. Similarly, applicants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada—and who obtained their PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree from a foreign university—may only take up the fellowship at a Canadian institution. But applicants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada and who obtained their PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree from a Canadian university may hold their Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship at either a Canadian institution or an institution outside of Canada.
