The department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of
Toronto invites applications for the prestigious Banting Postdoctoral
Fellowship. These awards include a $70,000 annual stipend for 2 years and
are available to excellent junior scientists from any country to conduct
postdoctoral research in Canada.
The University of Toronto is a leading academic institution in Canada with
over 60 faculty members specializing in ecology and evolution.
Strong links exist between the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary
Biology and the Royal Ontario Museum, the Centre for Global Change, the
School of the Environment, and the Faculty of Forestry. The University owns
a nearby field station dedicated to ecological research (the Koffler
Scientific Reserve, http://www.ksr.utoronto.ca ). The department also has a
partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources that helps
provide access to infrastructure, including lab facilities in Algonquin
Provincial Park (www.harkness.ca ), funding, and long-term data sets.
Genomic analyses are supported by the Centre for the Analysis of Genome
Evolution and Function (http://ift.tt/1F6cN66 ).
To apply, applicants should first contact and obtain the agreement of a
faculty advisor (or co-advisors) who is a member of EEB’s graduate faculty;
the faculty member(s) must agree to support the application.
