Steinberg Global Health Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Steinberg Global Health Postdoctoral Fellowship program ended in August 2019. No additional competitions will be held.

We are forever grateful to Mr. Arnold Steinberg and Professor Emerita Blema Steinberg, who sadly passed away in 2015 and 2017, respectively, for their steadfast support of global health at McGill. Their legacy will continue to motivate us as we work to position global health at McGill at the forefront internationally.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
