Fellowship Committee Adjudication and Selection

The Postdoctoral Fellows Offices convenes the Postdoctoral Fellowship Committee in March to select fellowship recipients.

The selected recipients' names will then be forwarded to the Killam Trustees for approval. The Killam Trustees notice of approval is granted at the spring meeting usually held in May.

Letters of offer will be sent to successful applicants, with a copy to their proposed supervisor(s) upon approval from the Killam Trustees. 

The Postdoctoral Fellows Office will also send letters of regret to unsuccessful applicants and their proposed supervisor(s).

Once a postdoc has accepted a fellowship, the Postdoctoral Fellows Office will provide the supervising faculty member direction to set up the research allowance and administers payroll and benefits of the fellowship.

The Postdoctoral Fellows Office also administers renewals of fellowships.
