Mitacs Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship

Mitacs Elevate is a postdoctoral fellowship with a customized research management training component. Fellows address complex challenges through:

  • An exclusive research management curriculum for postdoctoral fellows in any discipline
  • A two-year research project with a partner organization in need of high-level expertise
  • A Partner Organization Business Case, developed to outline project objectives, risks, and stakeholder success criteria, and ensure project value

Elevate fellows progress through the program in a cohort, giving them cross-disciplinary networking and peer-learning opportunities they might not have otherwise in their careers.

Over the two-year fellowship, Elevate fellows divide their time between their partner organization project and university-based research with their faculty supervisor.

Elevate fellows receive:

  • $50,000 minimum annual stipend/salary
  • Training curriculum valued at $7,500 per year
  • Submission assistance, including application feedback, from Mitacs representatives
  • Certificate of completion after receipt of their exit survey and final report submission
