An objective of the Strategic Research Plan (SRP) is to foster greater recognition of trainees as research leaders of the future. This includes supporting post-doctoral fellows (PDFs), their contribution to research and to advancing Queen’s University. The Post-Doctoral Fund is intended to attract outstanding PDFs to Queen’s University each year. Funding is intended to provide one year of salary support for up to three PDFs who have indicated their intention to hold the post-doctoral fellowship at Queen’s University. The start date for the Post-Doctoral Fellowship will normally begin on July 1, and the PhD must be complete at that time.
