Info for post-docs

We welcome post-doctoral fellows (PDFs) at UVic.

A PDF is someone who is pursuing their research after completing their doctorate. They conduct independent research but must be supervised by a UVic faculty member. In general, PDFs are either:

  • grant funded, meaning they are paid from their supervisor’s grants, and are employed by their PDF supervisor, or
  • externally funded, meaning they receive PDF funding from an external organization through a competitive process, and have an appointment at the university through a PDF supervisor.
