 Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Research Centre on Aging (CdRV)

The CdRV is opening a new $45,000 postdoctoral fellowship to support its researchers in the Biological Mechanisms of Aging (BMA) axis in developing their MiniBrain project. This one-year fellowship will give the postdoctoral fellow time to apply for the regular funding competitions held by national granting agencies for the year following the fellowship. The fellowship award will be based on the excellence of the application as evaluated by peers. See documents.

Provincial and national contests

The quality of the supervision provided at the Research Centre on Aging is reflected by the success of its students in provincial and national contests. 

Students have access to many bursary and research assistance programs:

  • Excellence scholarship and bursary programs offered by funding organizations (SSHRC, NSERC, FQRSC, FRSQ, FQRNT, CIHR);
  • Institutional bursary program offered by the Université de Sherbrooke;
  • Bursary programs offered by some 450 foundations and organizations.

Most research directors are membors of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging and/or the FORMSAV network. As such, their students have access to bursary and scholarship programs created for future researchers.

Finally, students can benefit from the bourses d’aide à la communication (communication assistance bursaries) offered by the CDRV and by the RQRV.
