As announced in November, the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) launched a Research Trainee Competition on November 2nd, 2015.  In order to increase awareness for the competition, and to highlight recent changes to the competition guidelines, MSFHR will be running a two hour information session.

The session will be led by MSFHR’s Research Programs Team and will consist of a 30 minute presentation with an overview of the guidelines and eligibility criteria followed by an open Q&A session.

The information session is intended for applicants at the post-PhD and post-health professional degree stages to prepare for careers as independent health researchers. Note that the sessions are also open to research administrators and grant facilitators.


Registration is required, and is now open. Successfully registered postdocs will receive a confirmation email within a week of the workshop date.
