2014-15 AITF Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

AI-TF Postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides a small number of high value fellowships to support excellent translational research in the areas of:

  • Information and Communication Technology
  • Nanotechnology
  • 'Omics' (e.g. Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics, Transcriptomics and Regulomics) 

The program is designed to develop leadership and entrepreneurship skills and support the transition and success of university postdoctoral fellows into industrial settings. 

As part of this Fellowship Program, AI-TF Fellows are required to attend both the Strategic Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship course and the Technology Commercialization (Science to Business) course offered by the School of Business. Once successfully completed, these courses may be applied to the School of Business’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Certificate Program. Tuition cost for these courses is the responsibility of the AI-TF Fellow.
