CIHR Postdoctoral Fellowships

Canadian Institutes of Health Research(CIHR) Health Research Training Strategy aims to equip research trainees so that they emerge from their training as scientific, professional, or organizational leaders within and beyond the health research enterprise. Generating Research Leaders of tomorrow is a key objective for CIHR.

CIHR Fellowships provide support for highly qualified applicants in all areas of health research at the post-PhD degree or post-health professional degree stages to add to their experience by engaging in health research either in Canada or abroad. Refer to CIHR’s website for annual stipend value and for more details about health research training award programs.

This is a direct application in which applicants submit their application to CIHR. There is no university internal application/adjudication process, however as CIHR ResearchNet may require institutional approval, applicants may be required to submit their application through the Research Services Office (RSO) Internal Submission Deadlines for Proposal Request Institutional Approval process.

Proposals must be received at the RSO during core business hours at least 5 business days in advance of the sponsor deadline, for institutional approval. It's recommended that applicants provide their completed application to their supervisor at least 10 business days prior to the sponsor deadline. 

External Deadline: October 5, 2023.
