Postdoctoral fellows are a distinct and valued group at Laurier. Postdoctoral Fellowships at Laurier are informed by our values, vision and guiding principles. In turn, it is expected that postdoctoral fellows will contribute to Laurier's core principles and institutional domains, as laid out in the university’s Academic Plan. Postdoctoral Fellow positions may be filled in a variety of ways: through a position posting by a faculty grant holder, by postdoc fellowships offered by Tri-Agencies, or by postdoc fellowships secured independently by recognized granting sources.

At the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, we are responsible for your appointment and we are here to support you. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing an equitable environment for postdoctoral fellows, in which they can pursue research and professional goals in individual and collaborative contexts, and gain valued experience for career advancement.
