The Child & Family Research Institute is committed to the research education and professional developments needs of postdoctoral fellows.

Scholars of Excellence Program – The CFRI Scholars of Excellence program provides exceptional individuals an opportunity to generate an innovative and independent research program under the mentorship of world-class researchers based at CFRI.

The overall goal of this program is to train recent PhDs, MDs and MD-PhD graduates to conduct clinical/translational research in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment with intent to develop future leaders in child health research. The program is designed to attract new talent, and preference will be given to applicants from outside BC.

Workshops and seminars organized through the Research Education Office are offered on an annual basis and/or as required based on the needs of the current trainee population. Registration for upcoming workshops is available on the event calendar.

The Research Education Outreach (REO) Committee also organizes several research events each year; an annual networking event for trainees, and an education outreach event for high school students.

The Faculty of Medicine Post-Doc Professional Development Team also organizes several workshops each year to help prepare postdocs for employment in academic and non-academic positions. In addition to the workshop the team organizes an annual Career Day which is held at the Child & Family Research Institute every four years..

A Guide for Postdoctoral Fellows, the handbook for the University of British Columbia’s postdoctoral fellows, provides basic information and advice for prospective and current postdocs.

If you have any feedback or suggestions related to research education contact the Research Education Office at reseduc@cfri.ca.
