How to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship

 

1. Contact the professor you would like to do your fellowship with and request their approval to supervise you as a postdoctoral researcher. See the list of all our professors
 

 

 

 

Eligibility criteria

• Have a PhD awarded within the last five years before the start of the postdoctoral fellowship or have officially submitted a thesis for evaluation (the five-year period can be extended up to two years in the case of parental leave or family leave)

 

• Have received from your supervising professor approval for a postdoctoral fellowship for a specified period

 

• Ensure the research work you will undertake as part of the postdoctoral fellowship is connected with INRS fields of study

 

 

Lenght and remuneration

 
 • Fellowship can begin at any time during the year. Postdoctoral fellows must focus exclusively on the work for which they sought the fellowship. Fellows are entitled to four weeks of vacation a year for each completed fellowship year.
 
 • Postdoctoral fellowships can last up to five years, including periods of interruption but excluding parental and family leave. Fellowships must be completed within seven years of the thesis defence.
 
 • The minimum annual income for a full-time salaried postdoctoral fellow is determined according to the pay rate set annually by the Government of Quebec for doctoral students. For example, the minimum annual income for May 1, 2017, to April 30, 2018, is $39,813.
 
 • Postdoctoral fellows with individual scholarships from external organizations for which INRS has been specifically named as the recipient’s host institution are considered scholarship postdoctoral fellows. Scholarship postdoctoral fellows must receive at least $30,000 from external organizations. Failing this, fellowship supervisors must supplement postdoctoral fellows’ income, and this income supplement is considered a salary.
