Welcome

Postdoctoral Fellows are valued members of the Schulich community.  Are you interested in becoming a Postdoctoral Fellow or Postdoctoral Associate at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry?  Please contact the faculty member you would like to work with to serve as your faculty mentor.  You may visit the program website or access Contact Western for further details.

In addition to finding the right supervisor, you will also need financial support. Typically, you have three options:

  1. A fellowship from an external agency;
  2. A fellowship or salary paid through a professor's grants or contracts;
  3. A fellowship or salary paid by a research unit of the University.

Also required is a formal appointment letter from your research supervisor, outlining the nature of the research planned, confirming how you will be paid (fellowship, salary) and providing other relevant details.
