Postdoctoral Fellows

Your Next Step Forward

Deepen your expertise, further your research, and launch your career with a postdoctoral fellowship in association with the University of Toronto.

​You will have a direct relationship with the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) and the U of T community if you are a U of T postdoc. If your funding comes through a hospital, you're a teaching hospital postdoc. You will be an essential member of both the University and hospital communities by working with faculty, conducting research, and engaging with graduate students.​​


You'll gain the recognition that comes from helping uncover and publish new approaches to real-world challenges and theoretical perspectives. You'll help create a critical mass of progressive academic achievement.

This environment of discovery makes U of T and SGS the perfect partners to nurture your professional and personal future. See how you qualify.
