Objectives

This career transition awards program aims to establish a long term career path for postdoctoral fellows from Québec who possess exceptional scientific abilities and ensure that recipients receive the support required to pursue careers as independent esearchers upon their return to Québec.

The program (5 to 6 years) involves two phases:
• Phase 1 (2 to 3 years): Postdoctoral training/career advancement at the NIH;
• Phase 2 (2 to 3 years): Salary support (career award) and operating grant to facilitate the recipient's return to Québec after training at the NIH and provide support as he/she embarks on a career as an independent researcher (faculty position in a Québec university or research centre). Phase 2 will be launched in Summer 2015.
