Congratulations to the Cycle 3 Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellows!

I am delighted to share the names of the recipients from the third cycle of the University of Toronto Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program. The program provides funding to increase opportunities for faculties to hire postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups, specifically Indigenous and/or Black researchers who demonstrate excellence and high potential for success in their chosen fields. The University is committed to fostering increased diversity and representation at all levels of teaching, learning, and research. Please join me in recognizing and celebrating these outstanding Fellows:
