Make a significant impact on discovery, creativity and innovation as a postdoc at UCalgary

Postdocs at UCalgary

At the University of Calgary postdocs are valued members of our community, and make indispensable contributions to academic research. Our program includes one-of-a-kind funding and fellowship opportunities that enable postdocs to pursue world-changing research. Postdoctoral scholars come to UCalgary with advanced skills and a research perspective developed at other leading institutions. Many come from beyond Canadian borders and enrich the cultural diversity of our campus community.

During your tenure as a postdoctoral scholar, you will challenge our faculty to consider new research directions, mentor graduate students, and — because of the time you are able to dedicate to research — can have a significant impact on our shared goals of promoting discovery, creativity and innovation.
