As Canada’s most prestigious trainee competition, the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is one of the most sought-after fellowship opportunities for postdoctoral fellows. The objective of the program is to attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent. Host institutions are asked to endorse only their highest-calibre postdoctoral researchers. In order to ensure that the highest-quality applicants are nominated for the national competition, UBC conducts an Internal Banting Competition, which will identify the strongest applicants to receive the institutional endorsement. The deadline to apply for the UBC Internal Banting Competition is Sunday, July 11, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT.
The UBC Internal Banting Competition is managed by the Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO). To help supervisors in the application process, the PDFO has crafted a number of supervisor resources, including a Template Supervisor’s Statement, which can be accessed at https://faculty-staff.grad.ubc.ca/update/55024 (CWL login required, cut and paste link into your browser).
