Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship 2021-2022

The 2021-2022 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship program was launched in April 2021. This 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 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is distinguished from existing postdoctoral fellowships programs by its emphasis on the synergy between an applicant’s individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career and the host institution’s commitment to the research program and environment with which the applicant is to be affiliated (including synergy with the host institution’s strategic priorities).

An applicant to the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program must complete their application in full collaboration with the proposed host institution.

The awards are a maximum amount of $70,000 per year (taxable) for up to 2 years (non-renewable), and 70 fellowships are awarded nationally each year.

There is an internal selection process for Banting Postdoctoral nominations at Memorial University. Before completing the application, download the following documents and closely review the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for detailed information:

Deadline date for the application package to be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies for internal review is noon, August 20 2021 (NDT)
