Application process

To apply for a Postdoctoral position at Memorial, please follow these instructions carefully:

  • Determine if you are eligible to become a Postdoctoral Fellow at Memorial.
  • For posted postions: review the postings of Postdoctoral positions at Memorial. To apply, please submit a cover letter, updated CV, and any other requested information including reference letters (if applicable) to the address noted on the job posting by the appropriate deadline. Decisions will be made only after the closing date.
  • For other potential opportunities: most postdoctoral appointments are not formally posted but initiated through an informal process involving a discussion between a Memorial University faculty member and a potential candidate. In cases where there are no relevant job postings, potential Postdocs are strongly encouraged to contact faculty members directly to discuss opportunities. You may consult the faculty directory on the departmental website or do a search through Yaffle using the key words that best describe your research interests.

Note: Memorial University is committed to employment equity and encourages applications from qualified women and men, visible minorities, Aboriginal people, and persons with disabilities.
