Re: Call for Nominations – Fall 2019 Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PDAD&C #2)
I am excited to share that applications are now being accepted for the University of Toronto Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program Fall 2019 competition. The response to the inaugural call this past spring was overwhelming, and we anticipate another wave of exceptional nomination packages.
Currently in the first year of a three-year pilot program, the University of Toronto Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides funding to increase opportunities for hiring postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups, specifically Indigenous and Black researchers. These fellowships will enable postdoctoral researchers to grow their scholarly profiles, undertake academic work at the University of Toronto, and strengthen the research environment at the University with diverse perspectives.
Faculty Research Offices are encouraged to establish an internal deadline, application and selection process before forwarding nominations to the School of Graduate Studies by November 1, 2019. Results for the Fall competition will be announced in December 2019.
Full details can be found on the SGS website.
