As Canada’s most prestigious trainee competition, the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is one of the most sought-after fellowship opportunities for postdoctoral fellows. The objective of the program is to attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent. Host institutions are asked to endorse only their highest-calibre postdoctoral researchers. In order to ensure that the highest-quality applicants are nominated for the national competition, UBC conducts an Internal Banting Competition, which will identify the strongest applicants to receive the institutional endorsement. The deadline to apply for the UBC Internal Banting Competition is Sunday, July 11, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT. [This is the institutional, not departmental, deadline.]

For questions about the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program, including eligibility and application components, please contact Banting directly. For any questions about the UBC Internal Banting Competition, please contact the Postdoctoral Fellows Office at
