CBS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Canadian Blood Services is accepting applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships to work with our affiliated Research & Development groups across Canada.

This is a two-year award with the possibility of a one-year renewal that includes salary, a research allowance and a benefits plan.


  • Candidates must not hold another award at the same time.

    Post Doctoral Fellowships are awarded for a minimum of one (1) year and a maximum of three (3) years.

    However, support for the third year is conditional upon receipt of a satisfactory progress report and by submitting a complete, renewal application for consideration by the review committee, to be received at the normal application deadline.

    Renewals are not automatic and a final decision on each renewal rests with the Associate Director, Research & Development.
