2015 Killam Postdoctoral Fellow Prize Award

The Postdoctoral Fellows Office is pleased to announce that the 2015 PDF Killam Prize Award Competition is now open. 


As part of UBC’s ongoing efforts to increase the benefits for Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs), the Postdoctoral Fellows Office (PDFO) is pleased to announce the 2015 Killam PDF Prize, an opportunity to recognize and reward UBC’s postdocs.  The Killam PDF Prize is in memory of Izaak Walton Killam and his wife, Dorothy Johnston Killam, who together created the Killam trusts.


Seeded from the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the PDFO, this initiative clearly demonstrates UBC’s recognition of the critical role played by PDFs in advancing the quality and excellence of our research.  The Killam PDF Prize Award will be administered through the PDFO and all nominations are to be forwarded to postdoctoral.fellows@ubc.ca with winners being announced in March 2016.


The 2015 Guidelines have been revised in addition to the number of nominations each Deans’ Office can submit.  Please find attached word copies of both the Guidelines and the Prize Application Form for your review with full details.


Application instructions and forms can be found on the PDFO website: https://www.postdocs.ubc.ca/award/killam-postdoctoral-research-fellowship.   Application deadline for submission to the PDFO from the respective Deans’ offices is

Friday December 11, 2015 12:00 PM PST.   Please ensure to communicate any internal deadlines your units may have to your postdoc community directly.
