Description: The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research brings together top international researchers to tackle many of the most interesting and pressing questions of our time. Our Junior Fellow Academy offers gifted, early career researchers the unique opportunity to participate in CIFAR’s global research network and to closely collaborate, and be mentored by, some of Canada’s and the world’s best researchers. Junior Fellows take part in one of CIFAR’s innovative research programs, where researchers meet regularly to establish new frameworks for thinking about the world with the potential to improve human health and the environment, transform technology, build strong societies, understand human culture and even chart the universe. To enhance leadership skills within an interdisciplinary network of peers, CIFAR also brings together Junior Fellows from all twelve programs for separate Academy meetings. CIFAR is seeking an exceptional early career researcher to fill a Junior Fellowship in its Successful Societies Program, beginning in the summer of 2013. Most typically, Junior Fellows work as postdoctoral fellows under the supervision of one or more CIFAR program members. Alternatively, applicants in the social sciences and humanities may hold a junior faculty position at any university.
