International Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

International Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The OFI International Postdoctoral Fellowship Program offers an opportunity for early career PhDs to conduct innovative, full time, collaborative research that is aligned with OFI’s research priorities

The term of the award is two years. Successful candidates will be based at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with frequent travel to and from one of our partner institutions in Europe or the United States, providing Fellows with exposure to diverse research approaches. 

Duration and Stipend
The OFI International Postdoctoral Fellowship is awarded for two years and is non-renewable. The award provides total compensation of $55,000 CAD/year plus benefits (see ‘Postdoctoral Fellow Employees’), and $15,000 CAD/year for work-related travel costs which include relocation expenses, travel to partner institutions, conferences, workshops, summer schools, and the non-travel exception for the purchase of a laptop/computer to a maximum amount of $1,500 CAD. Expenses such as long-term accommodation and visa application fees are not eligible expenses.

Terms and conditions 
The applicant’s proposed work should complement OFI’s research priorities. OFI will expect successful candidates to participate in research life at their selected institution (for example, participating in at least one presentation of their research in a departmental seminar, undergraduate lecture, or a public lecture during their research stay). Fellows must acknowledge OFI in all publications arising from their participation in the program and must notify OFI of any scholarly articles or books published, as well as media interviews. They must also contribute to OFI’s annual submission to its funding agency.

For logistical purposes, successful applicants must be based and start at Dalhousie University for the two years of the fellowship.
