The Postdoctoral Fellows Office is pleased to announce that the 2017 Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Research Prize Competition is now open.
The Killam Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) Research Prizes are awarded annually for excellence in research. Established in 2011, the Killam PDF Prize is in memory of Izaak Walton Killam and his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, who together created the Killam trusts. Two prizes in the amount of $5,000 each are awarded to full-time Postdoctoral Fellows at UBC in recognition of outstanding research and scholarly contributions while at UBC. Deans, nominators and nominees will be apprised of the status of their nominations by April 1, 2018.
Application instructions and forms can be found on the PDFO website.
Internal Deadline: Applications are due internally in the Faculty by 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 28, 2017. Only one candidate may be forwarded by the Faculty of Education. If more than one candidate applies at the internal deadline, a cross-Faculty committee will be struck to adjudicate the files and select the Faculty candidate.
Please take special note of the eligibility criteria and email a complete digital copy of the application package (including the single signed nomination letter and the two support letters) by 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 28, 2017 to Anke Shi in the Office of Research in Education (ORE).
