CIFAR invites exceptional early-career researchers from across the natural, biomedical and social sciences and the humanities to join one of our interdisciplinary research programs that address some of the most important questions facing science and humanity. The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program accelerates the development of the next generation of research leaders and positions them to heighten their impact in academia and beyond.
The program provides unrestricted research support of $100,000 CAD in the first five years of a full-time research position to collaborate with colleagues from diverse disciplines. Program components include participating in an interdisciplinary network of fellows, strengthening leadership and communication skills, and increasing impact within and outside of academia.
