Postdoctoral Fellowships

CTN Postdoctoral Fellowships

National Program

The CTN Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program facilitates research in HIV and related health conditions by providing funding to candidates who wish to write a trial protocol, research program, and develop and run their own trial. Former CTN postdoctoral fellows from the last decade include some of Canada’s leading HIV clinical investigators today. Each award is worth $50,000 plus up to $5,000 in travel allowance on expenses claimed. The fellowships provide career support and are renewable for up to two years.


We invite applications from MDs who have completed their medical residency program or PhDs who have completed their PhD. In addition, Biostatisticians with a PhD and working in a HIV or related health conditions group are also eligible to apply.

Please note that the Postdoctoral competition for 2016/2017 is now closed.
