NSERC, SSHRC to use new payment method for postdoctoral fellows

July 28, 2021
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) postdoctoral fellows holding awards within Canada will now be paid through their Canadian host institutions. The payment method will harmonize payment processes, formalize relationships between host institutions and fellows, and promote inclusion of award holders within Canada’s research landscape. The new payment approach will apply to postdoctoral fellows starting their work on or after April 1, 2022. Those holding awards outside of Canada will continue to receive pay directly from NSERC or SSHRC. NSERC (National)
