Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program In Canada


The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program will be distinguished from existing postdoctoral fellowships programs by its emphasis on: * the synergy between an applicants individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career; and * the host institutions commitment to the research program and environment with which the applicant is to be affiliated.

Successful applicants for the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program will be selected on the basis of three criteria: . research excellence and leadership in their area of expertise or research; . quality of the applicants proposed research program; and . institutional commitment and demonstrated synergy between applicant and institutional strategic priorities.
