Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowships

In the 2017 Provincial Budget, Research Manitoba received a $2 million cut to its budget, which is now $15 million annually. 

While Research Manitoba traditionally launches our Trainee, New Investigator, and Mid-Career Investigator Health Competitions December 1stthe launch of the 2018-2019 competition has been postponed. Please be aware that with our recent budget cut and current strategic planning process, there could be significant changes for, and possible cancellations of, existing programs. We are currently working through this process and we will share more information in the last week of April, 2018.

We understand that this may bring about substantial changes and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work through this.

A limited number of Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowships are available to qualified candidates with a doctoral degree whose prior postdoctoral research training does normally not exceed three years. Fellowship awards are intended to support recipients in becoming independent investigators. They can only be held in the Province of Manitoba.

Coordinated Fellowships Research Manitoba partners with other Health Research Funders and Institutions for a coordinated competition, where a single merit review process (managed by Research Manitoba) assesses applications for Award Funds from all partners and Research Manitoba.
