National Fellowship

As part of its mandate to promote research throughout Canada, the Institute provides partial support for postdoctoral fellows working in theoretical astrophysics or closely related fields at Canadian universities other than the University of Toronto, through the CITA Fellowship Programs.

There are two fellowships being offered: the CITA National Fellowship and the Canada Fellowship. National Fellows are two-year fellowships hosted entirely at a Canadian university other than the University of Toronto. Canada Fellows begin their tenure at a Canadian university outside the University of Toronto for the first two years and the subsequent two years at CITA for a total of a four-year fellowship.

If you are interested in a CITA Fellowship or Canada Fellowship, please contact any of the following faculty by email or check department websites for further research projects and details.
