What is a Postdoctoral Fellow?
Postdoctoral Fellows are individuals who have completed a doctoral degree and who are seeking further training in a particular area of research. As valued members of the UBC Okanagan community, Postdoctoral Fellows make an indispensable contribution to the research environment of the University and to their chosen field. In doing so, they raise the profile of themselves and UBC. They work under the general supervision of a faculty member and may assist with the supervision of graduate students.
Dedicated Research Facilities
In addition to dozens of active research labs, Postdoctoral Fellows can collaborate with researchers at one of the many institutes and centres housed on UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Accomplished Faculty Members
If you are interested in applying for a Postdoctoral Fellowship, you will have access to renowned and award-winning faculty members, who are recognized leaders in their field.
