Postdoctoral fellows

Michele Anderson and trainee Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI) offers hands-on learning experiences for postdoctoral fellows who have completed their graduate studies and have an interest in research. There are 71 postdoctoral fellows working on projects across our three scientific platforms: Biological Sciences, Evaluative Clinical Sciences and Physical Sciences.


A postdoctoral fellow is an individual who was recently awarded a PhD and wishes to pursue further training in his or her academic field.

For international fellows: If a postdoctoral fellow is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, then the position at SRI is contingent upon obtaining employment authorization, which is required under Canadian law.
