Training

Postdoctoral

Postdoctoral training (not leading to a further degree) is available at both the post-PhD and post-MD level. Typically such training is for 2-3 years. The TFL is a highly sought research environment for postdoctoral fellows and has trained nearly 250 such fellows from around the world.

Candidates for such positions are encouraged to seek independent awards from sources such as the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council (NSERC) or the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research.  Individuals should check with the various agencies for deadlines and eligibility.  Candidates from outside Canada who can obtain funding from an agency in their home country are also encouraged to apply.

Individuals with MDs are encouraged to enroll in PhD programs if they have not already completed such a degree.

A limited number of grant-funded positions also exist for post-doctoral fellows, both post-PhD and post-MD.

Interested individuals may apply by sending a curriculum vitae and names/contact information of two references via email to the faculty member with whom the applicant would like to work.  General applications to the TFL and all other inquiries should be sent to Alice Chau: .
