Research Postdoctoral Fellowships

Research Postdoctoral Fellowships support highly qualified postdoctoral trainees to prepare for careers as independent researchers. These exceptional trainees significantly increase the productivity of the research programs with which they are affiliated. Research Manitoba now provides awards for Postdoctoral Fellows without one of our funding partners.

All applicants funded by this award are in the Health, Natural Science & Engineering, and Social Sciences & Humanities categories.

All awards consist of an annual stipend for up to a maximum of one year.
