The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program provides funding to the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and internationally, who will positively contribute to the country's economic, social and research-based growth.  Additional information about the program is available here:

The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program is unique in its emphasis on the synergy between:
• the applicant – their individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career; and
• the host institution – their commitment to the research program and alignment with the institution's strategic priorities

An applicant to the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program must complete their application in full collaboration with the proposed host institution.

The University of Regina has implemented an internal review and selection process for all Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship applications.
