  • Be within the first seven years of completion of a MD and/or PhD degree;

  • Demonstrate an excellent level of research achievement and promise of future impact in mental health research, as evidenced by proposed research, quality of publications, awards received, and statements by referees;

  • Demonstrate a track record of, or interest in, engaging across disciplines, as well as with sectors beyond academia to enrich and extend the impact of their research;

  • Obtain and hold a valid work permit to work in Canada for the period of employment (there are no restrictions on citizenship).
