Application for postdoctoral studies or clinical fellowships:

The Centre for the Study of Host Resistance currently has 47 postdoctoral fellows, from Canada and abroad. We are proud of the fact that many of the postdoctoral fellows in the Centre have gone on to positions in universities and industry. If you are interested in doing your postdoctoral training within the Centre, you are encouraged to contact a prospective supervisor directly.

Several Centre laboratories are active in the training of Clinical Fellows. Dr C Tsoukas organizes a three-year Clinical Fellowship in HIV Medicine. In addition, Dr B Ward trains Clinical Fellows in Infectious Disease in his laboratory.


There are numerous opportunities for postdoctoral fellowships. The links provided below contain information for Canadian as well as foreign students:
