The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council have been working closely together to develop The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program, first announced in the Government of Canada’s 2010 budget.
The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program will award 70 postdoctoral fellowships each year distributed equally among the three agencies. Fellowships will be of two-year duration, valued at $70,000/year (taxable). Uniquely, the program requires that research institutions be closely involved in endorsing applicants and be committed to providing the research environment and professional development successful applicants require in order to become the research leaders of the future.
We encourage you to join with us in recruiting the highest-quality applicants from both Canada and abroad. In light of the small number of awards in the program, and the demands of both the application process and the peer-review process, we ask for your cooperation in carefully selecting those applicants you wish to endorse, bearing in mind that Banting Fellowships will ultimately be awarded to an elite group of researchers who have demonstrated both research excellence and leadership.
Application Process and Deadlines
Without exception, all applicants, in collaboration with their proposed host institutions, will be required to submit a complete electronic application, including referee assessments, via ResearchNet on or before November 3, 2010. Late or incomplete submissions will not be considered. Note that the application includes an applicant CV which must be completed on the Canadian Common CV platform.
