Through the Will of his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam this Killam Scholarship and Prize Programmes were initiated in memory of Izaak Walton Killam with a primary purpose to support advanced education and research at five Canadian universities and the Canada Council for the Arts.
This time Killam Trusts is offering fellowships available for pursuing postdoctoral degree level in any of the courses. It is a offer for Canadian and international students and available at Canada.
In keeping with the original spirit of the Killam Endowments, the goal of the Killam Postdoctoral Research Fellowships program is to bring outstanding scholars from around the world to UBC in order to engage in innovative research that will enhance interdisciplinary collaborations and help establish them in leadership positions in the academic and wider community. As such, applicants must be able to contribute fresh intellectual insights to UBC.
-Applicants must have completed all requirements of their PhD no more than 24 months prior to the anticipated fellowship start date. Completion of PhD requirements refers to the date that the applicant completed all the steps required for obtaining their degree. Although these requirements may vary by institution and degree type. They normally include thesis defense corrections and thesis deposition. It is not the convocation date.
-The period of eligibility may be extended for applicants who have had their career interrupted or delayed for the purpose of childrearing, illness, or health-related family responsibilities. The interruption(s) or delay(s) must have occurred after the applicant completed all the requirements of their PhD. Note that the eligibility window will only be extended by the duration of the delay(s) or interruption(s), to a maximum of one year. Justification for the extension must be provided in the Special Circumstances attachment.
-Applicants must not have pursued PhD-level studies at any campus of the University of British Columbia.
-Applicants must not currently hold a tenure-track or continuing faculty position at a university or college. Applicants who currently hold a temporary, term, or non-tenure track faculty appointments are eligible to apply.
-should have shown outstanding ability in research, in that they would be likely to contribute to the advancement of learning or to win distinction in their profession
-should not be one-sided, and have a sound character that complements their intellect
-may be citizens of any country; though there are no restrictions regarding nationality of applicants, successful candidates must be able to meet all Canadian immigration requirements
Canadian and international students can submit an application for the fellowships.
-the qualities of the research project (e.g., clarity, feasibility, suitability of location, proposed supervisor, and facilities)
-the strength of the letters of reference
-the fit of the proposed research to the host department or unit
Preference will be given to applicants with no previous postdoctoral award. Fellowships will be distributed as evenly as possible among the various disciplines, though the primary criteria are academic excellence and research ability.
