Funding Opportunities

Western Postdoctoral Fellowships Program

The Office of the Vice-President (Research) has initiated Western’s Postdoctoral Fellowships Program as a two-year pilot in 2018-2019. The program will provide funding for up to 10 of the very best postdoctoral applicants, nationally and internationally, who will contribute positively to research excellence at the university and help advance Western's strategic research plan.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships Program’s objectives are to:

  • Attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent, nationally and internationally;
  • Develop their leadership potential; and
  • Position them for success as tomorrow’s research leaders.

Matching requirement: A minimum 1:1 funding match is required.

  • $20,000 + Benefits is provided through the Vice-President (Research); and
  • A minimum of $20,000 + Benefits must be committed by another source (e.g., grant money from a supervisor, industry funding, departmental or faculty-level support, etc.). Note: As this funding is intended to allow recipients to conduct research-intensive projects, remuneration for teaching (or teaching assistance) cannot be included as a component of the $20,000 match.

Please contact Shelley Bellyou or Kathy Laid by May 15 due to the matching funds requirement.

Deadline:  Western: May 31, 2018, 2pm EST

Collaborative Health Research Projects (NSERC Partnered)

This Collaborative Health Research Projects (CHRP) Initiative funding opportunity is offered by CIHR in partnership with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

The CHRP Initiative funding supports innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects, requiring participation from the natural sciences or engineering community together with the health sciences community. The CHRP Initiative funding requires the translation of the research results to knowledge/technology users (KTUs) and related stakeholders outside the academic or training environment. As such, the proposed research projects must have a strong focus on knowledge translation (KT) and lead to health and economic benefits for Canadians, more effective health services and products, and/or a strengthened health care system.

Nominated Principal Applicants (2) must be one from the natural sciences or engineering community, and one from the health sciences community, therefore they must meet the NSERC Eligibility Criteria and be at an institution eligible to receive funds from NSERC.
