Postdoctoral fellowship in genome data science
The Ontario Genomics and CANSSI Ontario Postdoctoral Fellowship in Genome Data Science is now open for applications.
This fellowship is intended to support the work of early-career investigators pursuing research in the areas of genomics and data science with an emphasis on genomic medicine, including, but not limited to, methodology, application, and translation of genomic prediction tools such as polygenic risk scores, human-computer interactions, or novel genomic computational approaches to therapeutic identification. Proposed projects should be innovative, generalizable across applications, and not restricted to developing a predictive tool for a single application.
The fellowship offers two-year salary support for up to $50,000 per year for postdoctoral fellows undertaking full-time research at a CANSSI Ontario partner university or their affiliated research institutes. Candidates are responsible for selecting, contacting, and securing the commitment of two faculty members to jointly supervise them in their project, where at least one is a faculty member with a PhD in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, computational biology, genomics, or computer science. The second supervisor can be from any other field.
Funding availability: Up to two years
Maximum fellowship value: $50,000 per year
Deadline to apply: November 1, 2023
Expected number of awards: Two
