The purpose of the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships is to build world-class research capacity by recruiting top-tier Canadian and international postdoctoral researchers at an internationally competitive level of funding. The objective is to attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent, both nationally and internationally, to develop their leadership potential and to position them for success as research leaders of tomorrow, positively contributing to Canada's economic, social and research-based growth through a research-intensive career.
Great work! We are very pleased to have Master's student Audrey Yank, from the department of Bioresource Engineering, receiving special recognition from the jury at "Votre Soutenance en 180 secondes" hosted by L’Association francophone pour le savoir (Acfas). Acfas is a non-profit organization that contributes to the growth of science in Quebec and within the francophone community.
Earlier this year, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) launched Research for a Better Life: The Storytellers, a competition encouraging Canadian post-secondary students to find innovative ways of communicating how funded research projects about people, behaviour, human thought and culture are beneficial to Canadians – and beyond. The winners will receive $3,000 and the chance to compete for a featured presentation at the next World Social Sciences Forum.
Richard H. Tomlinson (PhD '48, McGill University) enjoyed a career in Chemistry that won him national recognition as a university teacher and success as an inventor and entrepreneur. In the year 2000, he created an exceptional series of recruitment student awards with the aim of giving the finest young minds the opportunity to study at McGill University.
The Tomlinson Fellowships are recruitment fellowships for Master's in the Faculty of Science and for Doctoral research in any discipline.
