2014 Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship Competition

Izaak Walton Killam Postdoctoral Fellowships are valued at CAN$ 44,000 per annum. Fellowships are awarded for a period of two years. The competition is late in each year, for tenure in the following calendar year.

Prospective candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • The applicant does not hold a PhD or JSD degree from Dalhousie (including the former TUNS or DalTech) or is not currently completing a PhD or JSD degree at Dalhousie.
  • The applicant must not have held previously, or hold as of the application deadline, an academic or research appointment of any kind at Dalhousie, King's College, former DalTech, or former TUNS.
  • The applicant must not be physically at Dalhousie or King's from the beginning of the academic year (September 1), even if funded independently of the above payroll offices.
  • excellent research references & good academic record
  • excellent publication record in top-ranked journals

Applicants are encouraged to write to our faculty directly with the intention of securing a host laboratory.

The final deadline for completed applications is December 16, 2013. Guidelines and application forms for the 2014 KPDF competition are available on the FGS website.
