Trainee Opportunities

MITACS Elevate

by Nicole Gervais | Apr 05, 2018

Mitacs Elevate is a postdoctoral fellowship with a customized research management training component. Fellows address complex challenges through:

  • An exclusive research management curriculum for postdoctoral fellows in any discipline
  • A minimum one-year research project (normally two years in duration) with a partner organization in need of high-level expertise
  • A Partner Organization Business Case, developed to outline project objectives, risks, and stakeholder success criteria, and ensure project value

 Elevate fellows progress through the program in a cohort, giving them cross-disciplinary networking and peer-learning opportunities they might not have otherwise in their careers.

Over the two-year fellowship, Elevate fellows divide their time between their partner organization project and university-based research with their faculty supervisor.

Funding Details: $55,000 minimum annual stipend/salary.Training curriculum valued at $7,500 per year

Anticipated deadline for intent to apply generally mid-January.  Please see here for more information
