The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program and Obtain an Annual Financing of $ 70,000

The Banting postdoctoral fellowships program provides funding to the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and internationally, who will positively contribute to the country's economic, social and research-based growth. The objective of the Banting postdoctoral fellowships program is to attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent, both nationally and internationally in order to develop their leadership potential and position them for success as research leaders of tomorrow.

Eligibility:

You must:

  • Confirm that you and your proposed host institution meet the criteria below before you apply for a Banting postdoctoral fellowship.
  • Applications that do not meet all of the eligibility criteria will be deemed ineligible.
  • This fellowship is not intended for students including health professionals to complete a degree.
  • Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada and foreign citizens are eligible to apply, provided they meet the following conditions:
    • Applicants who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada may only hold their Banting postdoctoral fellowship at a Canadian institution.
    • 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 hold their Banting postdoctoral fellowship at a Canadian institution.
    • 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.
    • For a list of eligible health professions, please see CIHR’s webpage.
  • Applicants to the 2020-21 Banting postdoctoral fellowships program must fulfill or have fulfilled all degree requirements for a PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree between September 15, 2017 and September 30, 2021 (inclusively), and before the start date of their award.
  • Applicants who have not fulfilled all requirements for their degree at the time of application must submit proof no later than October 15, 2021.
  • For applicants who have completed more than one PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree, the eligibility window applies to the most recent of these degrees.
  • The window of eligibility can be extended by a cumulative maximum of three years if the applicant had their career interrupted for extenuating circumstances, such as parental leave, illness, health-related family responsibilities, mandatory military service, disruptions due to war, civil conflicts and/or natural disasters in the country of residence, socio-economic reasons, etc.
  • Applicants who currently hold or have held agency-specific (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) awards at the postdoctoral level are eligible to apply to the 2020-21 Banting postdoctoral fellowships program only if the term of that funding officially ends on or before September 30, 2021 and prior to the start of the Banting postdoctoral fellowship. Early termination of the agency-specific postdoctoral award for the purpose of application to the Banting postdoctoral fellowships program is not permitted.
  • Applicants can apply for both the Banting postdoctoral fellowships program and other agency-specific postdoctoral fellowships programs (whether to the same or a different federal granting agency) at the same time, provided that the research proposed in each application falls within the mandate of the federal granting agency to which the application is submitted. For more information, please refer to Identify area of research.
    *Applicants who are successful in both competitions will have to choose which award to accept.
  • Only in rare circumstances will a Banting postdoctoral fellowship be awarded to an applicant who is staying at the same institution or within the same research environment where they completed their PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree. If an applicant chooses to apply in collaboration with the same institution (or its affiliated hospitals, research centers and other laboratories) or within the same research environment from which they obtained their PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree, a solid justification must be provided in the special circumstances attachment. Examples of valid justifications are scientific reasons (e.g., availability of specialized equipment/infrastructure or expertise), family reasons (e.g., family obligations), health reasons (e.g., proximity to health care facilities) and/or reasons related to community or cultural responsibilities..
