Description

‣ The Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and Prize Programmes were established in memory of Izaak Walton Killam through the Will of his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, and through gifts made during her lifetime.

Their primary purpose is to support advanced education and research at five Canadian universities and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Eligibility

‣ In keeping with the original spirit of the Killam Endowments, the goal of the Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellowship program is to bring outstanding scholars from around the world to UBC in order to engage in innovative research that will enhance interdisciplinary collaborations and help establish them in leadership positions in the academic and wider community.

‣ As such, applicants must be able to contribute fresh intellectual insights to UBC.

‣ Applicants:

  • The interruption(s) or delay(s) must have occurred after the applicant completed all the requirements of their PhD.
