New opportunity: Tracer Release Experiment (TReX) Postdoc Awards

By April 8, 2021No Comments

After launching our third call for applications for the TReX Graduate Student Awards this week, MEOPAR is excited to announce an additional funding opportunity with the Tracer Release Experiment (TReX).

TReX is designed to act as a research aggregator, drawing together modelling, observational and response research teams from government and academia across Canada. The new TReX Postdoc Awards aim to attract and support postdoctoral fellows to participate in the project, providing funding ($25,000) over a six-month period while they are carrying on research activities on the TReX project and must result in the submission of at least one publication.

To be eligible, postdoctoral fellow applicants must:

  • Participate full‐time in their respective program at a Canadian post-secondary institution that is eligible for Tri-Council funding
  • Engage in research aligned with the TReX Project
  • Demonstrate support from their supervisor for their proposed work on the TReX project
  • Be supervised by a researcher from any NSERC eligible institution outside of Québec and “co-advised” by a researcher (e.g. university, government, etc.) in Québec who is participating/collaborating on the TReX project OR be supervised by a researcher from any NSERC eligible institution in Québec and “co-advised” by a researcher (e.g. university, government, etc.) outside of Québec who is participating/collaborating on the TReX project.

Because the purpose of these awards is to bring new postdoctoral fellows into the network, PDFs who are currently supported financially from a MEOPAR research project are ineligible to apply to this opportunity.
