The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is intended to attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent, both nationally and internationally; develop their leadership potential; and position them for success as research leaders of tomorrow, positively contributing to Canada’s economic, social and research-based growth through a research-intensive career.
Seventy fellowships are awarded annually, divided evenly between Canada’s three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC). There are a total of 140 awards active at any one time.
The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program is unique in its emphasis on the synergy of research goals and projects between the following:
- Applicant – individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career
- Host Institution – commitment to the research program and alignment with the institution’s strategic prioritiesb
