Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (PDRF) at Canadian Universities, 2012 -2013 Canada

The Canada–Mexico Awards (CMA) are based on a reciprocal agreement between the governments of Canada and Mexico. The Canada-Mexico Awards were reconfigured in 2010 to include opportunities for post-doctoral research. The Government of Canada’s objective in establishing the Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships is to attract promising, recent doctoral graduates to do research in Canada. The Government wishes to support research that clearly advances the scholar’s own career and that is useful to Canada or to the research team within which the scholar proposes to work.
