China Scholarship Council (CSC) Postdoctoral Scholarship

The University of British Columbia (UBC) is very pleased to receive applications from excellent Chinese scholars who will be applying for China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarships. UBC is one of the world's top universities with outstanding research facilities and faculty mentors. It is located in Vancouver, Canada—one of the most beautiful, cosmopolitan and diverse cities in North America.

The CSC Postdoctoral Scholarship is a 3-12 month scholarship for individuals who hold a PhD degree to obtain further research training at UBC. The CSC scholarship provides $1600 per month and travel expenses. The UBC supervisor must agree to provide an additional $1300 per month.

Applying to UBC as a Postdoctoral Scholar

You must hold a PhD degree.

Identify opportunities at UBC. Please visit the UBC Faculty Careers webpage for links to current UBC openings within each faculty. Also, you may directly contact a faculty member with related research interests (even if there are no current postings in that area). Postdoctoral applications can be made directly to a specific faculty member(s). Be sure to mention that you will apply for the CSC postdoctoral scholarship.

If a UBC supervisor agrees to hire you and cover the additional $1300/month stipend, they will begin the appointment process.  You will be provided with a letter of appointment which you may use to apply for the CSC scholarship through the CSC in China.
