Want to conduct postdoctoral research at 澳门开奖 but not sure whether you qualify as a postdoctoral candidate or as academic personnel? 听Refer to the table below to find out what category you fit into, and where to go from there!

Postdoctoral Fellow/Scholar/Researcher

In Quebec, 鈥楶ostdoctoral Fellow鈥 is a regulated category of trainee requiring full time registration at the University in compliance with provincial regulations set out by the Minist猫re de l'Enseignement sup茅rieur (MES) for the purpose of governing postdoctoral education. Quickly defined, a postdoctoral candidate must be within five years of graduating with a Ph.D. or equivalent (including a recognized health professional degree plus a medical specialty) who are engaged in research at the invitation of and under the supervision of a member of 澳门开奖鈥檚 academic staff. Please see听definition, status, and policies and procedures governing registration of postdoctoral candidates at 澳门开奖.

Postdoctoral Research Trainee

If your situation does not conform to the MES听definition of postdoctoral fellow, you may be eligible to attend 澳门开奖 as a postdoctoral research trainee. While at 澳门开奖, a postdoctoral research trainee can perform research only (may not register for courses or engage in clinical practice). Please see the Research Trainee section for more information.

The following categories of employment are administered by the听Academic Personnel Office.听Prospective Research Associates and Visiting Scholars should apply through the 澳门开奖 Department of their proposed supervisor and through the Academic Personnel Office.

Research Associates

An individual with a Doctoral degree who is more than five years post-graduation can be employed as a听Research Associate听if he/she is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. This is an employment category and cannot be filled by a foreign applicant without prior posting of the position and preference to Canadian applicants.

Visiting Scholar

A Visiting Scholar is:

  • An individual who has been practicing a profession and is taking leave from that practice to obtain practical training/experience in research under the supervision of a 澳门开奖 professor(s), which is not leading to a degree or fulfilling a requirement for a program leading to a medical specialization.听
  • An individual employed at another institution who has prior research training and experience and who is coming to 澳门开奖 to collaborate with a 澳门开奖 professor on a research project.

The conditions above do not meet the requirements for registration as a postdoctoral fellow as the individuals lack medical specialty or are more than five years post-degree/specialty certification.听


Faculty and staff who work with postdoctoral researchers should visit Working with Postdocs for a description of their responsibilities and instructions on how to fulfill them. Supervisors should also ensure that they're aware of the guiding principles and best practices pertinent to advising postdocs.
