The Postdoctoral Fellows Office is pleased to announce that the 2017 Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Research Prize Competition is now open.
As part of UBC’s ongoing efforts to increase the benefits for Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs), the Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO) is pleased to announce the 2017 Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Research Prize, an opportunity to recognize and reward UBC’s postdocs. The Killam PDF Research Prize is funded by the generous donation of Izaak Walton Killam and his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, who together created the Killam trusts.
This initiative clearly demonstrates UBC’s recognition of the critical role played by PDFs in advancing the quality and excellence of our research. The Killam PDF Prize will be administered through the PDFO and all nominations are to be forwarded firstname.lastname@example.org. Deans, nominators and nominees will be apprised of the status of their nominations by April 1, 2018.
Application instructions and forms can be found on the PDFO website: https://www.postdocs.ubc.ca/award/killam-postdoctoral-fellow-research-prize. The nomination deadline for submission to the PDFO from the respective Deans’ offices is Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 10:00 AM PST.
Please ensure to communicate any internal deadlines your units may have to your postdoc community directly.
We will also be communicating this announcement to the UBC PDF community later today.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
