Postdoctoral fellows are a distinct and valued group at Laurier. Postdoctoral Fellowships at Laurier are informed by our values, vision and guiding principles. In turn, it is expected that postdoctoral fellows will contribute to Laurier's core principles and institutional domains, as laid out in the university’s Academic Plan. Postdoctoral Fellow positions may be filled in a variety of ways: through a position posting by a faculty grant holder, by postdoc fellowships offered by Tri-Agencies, or by postdoc fellowships secured independently by recognized granting sources.
At the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, we are responsible for your appointment and we are here to support you. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing an equitable environment for postdoctoral fellows, in which they can pursue research and professional goals in individual and collaborative contexts, and gain valued experience for career advancement.
Please explore this webpage for information to enhance your postdoctoral experience at Laurier. Here you will find information about coming to Laurier, scholarship programs, professional skills development opportunities available including those offered through our ASPIRE program, health and wellness resources, and other professional organizations including the Canadian Association of Postdoctoral Scholars (CAPS) which we encourage you to join.
If you have questions, please contact Dr. Brent Wolfe, Associate Dean.
