Opportunity for Post-Graduate Research Fellowships in Canada

Commonwealth Scholarship Commission have an exciting opportunity for postdoctoral researchers within the humanities, the social sciences, the natural sciences and engineering. The Canadian Government has invited the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK to nominate up to fifteen candidates for one year 'Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships' in Canada in 2011 and they are seeking applications from suitably qualified candidates from which to select their nominees.

Note that the Commission can only accept applications from UK citizens and candidates should have been awarded their PhD within the last three years (or to have completed the PhD requirements before taking up the award in September 2011).

Applications must be made using the online application system provided by the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) by the 15 November 2010, and all supporting documentation must be submitted to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK by the 25 November 2010. The Commission will then make their own selections and will nominate candidates to CBIE for their consideration in January 2011.

Full information about the Fellowships, including a link to the application form, can be found on their Website at: and any queries can be addressed to: mailto:
