UBC has a number of active NSERC Collaborative Research and Training Experience Programs that support the training of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad. These programs offer innovative training that:

  • encourages collaborative and integrative approaches
  • addresses significant scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities
  • facilitates the transition of new researchers from trainees to productive employees in the Canadian workforce

NSERC CREATE programs are designed to foster the acquisition and development of important professional skills among students and postdoctoral fellows that complement their qualifications and technical skills, and improve their job-readiness for careers in industry, government, non-governmental organizations, and/or academia.


Application Procedures

Students should review the list of active UBC NSERC CREATE programs and follow the application procedures set by each program.
