Post-doctoral funding possibilities to work at the University of Victoria in computational stellar physics and nuclear astrophysics


Deadlines for several post-doctoral funding options are approaching fast:


(a)  CITA national fellowship ( The CITA national fellowship pays for one year with the expectation that the host institution pays a matching one year.

(b) A very attractive possibility, a new program, the Banting post-doctoral fellowship: This is a new program, and so, chances may be quite good.

(c)   For a shorter stay of maybe one year a fellowship from the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences ( could be combined with some matching funds from our grants.

(d)  An ideal way for Europeans: the International Outgoing Fellowships for career development (IOF) in the Marie Curie FP7 ( I am not sure when the next call will be made, but  chances for a “good fit” proposal are quite high.
