An opportunity to explore high-risk, high-reward research ideas

The AC’s postdoctoral program provides fellows with the opportunity to work with 2 or more AC members (hosts), including one with a faculty appointment at U of T. While fellows will be based at U of T, our aim is to encourage collaboration between our members in Toronto, across Canada and around the world.
