Postdoctoral Fellowships

A postdoctoral fellowship 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.

Past guidelines


  • Fellowship value: $75,000 (salary support of $70,000 and $5,000 for lab consumables) per year for up to 5 fellows
  • Past theme areas:
  • Applications of AI in molecular or materials discovery (including but not limited to energy production and storage, construction materials, electronics, healthcare, life sciences and the circular economy)
  • Integrating machine learning with computational and experimental methods
  • Laboratory automation
  • High throughput data analysis
  • Multidisciplinary approaches are required
