Whether you are a prospective PDF looking for a position at UBC or a current UBC PDF seeking the next step in your career, this section provides valuable information to help you advance.

Becoming a PDF at UBC

The first step in finding a PDF position at UBC is to search the research interests of individual faculty members to locate a potential supervisor. Faculty members can be contacted directly to discuss potential PDF appointment opportunities, and applications can be made directly to faculty members.

Postdoctoral appointments at UBC are managed through individual faculties and departments. The Postdoctoral Fellows Office does not accept applications nor are we involved in the hiring process.

UBC PDF Postings

While most PDF positions at UBC can by found by contacting a faculty member directly, some positions may be posted on individual faculty websites. Please visit Faculty Career Opportunities for a comprehensive list of links to UBC's faculties. The following faculty members have indicated to us that they are actively looking to attract Postdocs.

Research Interests: Occupational Health, Noise and Chrnoic Disease

Research Interests: Cosmology

Potential project areas:

A wide range of topics within observational and theoretical cosmology

Research Interests: Pharmacogenomics, Adverse drug reactions (ADRs), Drug safety and effectiveness, Clinical pharmacology, Pharmacovigilance

Potential project areas:

There are numerous opportunities for pursuing doctoral and post-doctoral research using state of the art genotyping and sequencing platforms to identify the genetic determinants of severe adverse drug reactions (ADRs) in paediatric and adult populations. In close collaboration with the CPNDS active surveillance network, genetic association and validation studies are being performed to define ADR causal genes and to develop diagnostic tests to offer personalized therapeutic recommendations for commonly used drugs. Current pharmacogenomics and surveillance focuses are: cisplatin, anthracyclines, vincristine, warfarin, codeine, inhaled corticosteroids, 5-HT3 antagonists (antiemetics), and drugs used in the treatment of Hepatitis C. Other projects include the development of clinical practice guidelines for six drugs, and knowledge translation to implement pharmacogenomic testing in clinical practice.

Research Interests: Electrochemistry, electrocatalysis, electrochemical power sources, advanced electrolysis, , hydrogen production and storage, waste water and drinking water treatment, solar fuels, carbon dioxide conversion, clean and sustainable energy and water

Research Interests: Bayesian statistical methods, Causal inference, Evidence synthesis, Biostatistics

Research Interests: Bioinformatics, genome science, mutations, cancer progression

Potential project areas:
