The Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Research Prizes are awarded annually for excellence in research. Established in 2011, the Killam PDF Prize is in memory of Izaak Walton Killam and his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, who together created the Killam trusts. Two prizes in the amount of $5,000 each are awarded to fulltime Postdoctoral Fellows at UBC in recognition of outstanding research and scholarly contributions while at UBC.
Eligibility, procedures and deadlines can be found in the Killam PDF Prize Guidelines.
Once you have carefully read the Guidelines, download and submit the Killam PDF Prize Application Form.
LOI Deadline: January 14, 2013, 2:00 pm MST
A consortium of Canadian research organizations has combined efforts to fund development of an innovative test for the presence of pathogenic E. coli bacteria during food production. This funding program aims to foster continuous improvement in the safety of the Canadian food supply and create long-term health benefits for Canada.
This funding program has been introduced by Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions, Alberta Genome on behalf of Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency, Genome Canada and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. More than $1 million is available over 18 months for one or two projects to develop a genomic based detection methodology that is rapid, sensitive, affordable, and field-deployable.
Researchers or a team of researchers within private industry, academic institutions, provincial research centres, federal research centres or non-profit research establishments are invited to submit a letter of intent (LOI) to the program as the first step in the application process for a non-repayable research grant. Applications should have a strong connection to Canada.
A workshop is being conducted in the second week of December, 2012 that will include information regarding the topics of this call. Pre-registration is required by November 29th to Heather Smith at Genome Alberta, HSmith@genomealberta.ca.
The forms are available at www.genomealberta.ca . Please feel free to forward this information.

RISE Worldwide is a funded opportunity to engage high-quality, international undergraduate students from Germany for an approximate 12-week research internship in the summer of 2013. Each RISE participant will receive a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Association (DAAD) that includes a monthly allowance, travel support and insurance of up to 3100 euros.
The program offers great benefits to you:
- evaluate participants based on their research ability and possible recruitment of high quality candidates into UBC grad programs,
- might gain new insights through a foreigner’s perspective on scientific discussions,
- provide opportunities to PhD students to gain supervision experience,
- get additional assistance with your experimental work and research,
- gain new contacts with German universities.
- Proposal submissions can be made by a faculty member, researcher, Postdoc or a PhD student (Postdocs and PhD students require consent/letter of support from their supervisor)
- Proposals have to be submitted between Oct 8 – Nov 25, 2012
- Project proposal submission at: http://www.daad.de/rise-weltweit/en/12014/index.html
- Time frame for the internship: June to October 2013 (German academic year ends mid-July, i.e. expect students to start at that time)
- Internship length: 6 weeks to 12 weeks maximum
Note: eligible projects in Medicine will be in the following subject categories: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Life Sciences, Genetics. Past supervisors have included faculty members from Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics; Cellular & Physiological Sciences; Biochemistry & Molecular Biology; Psychiatry; Urologic Sciences.
