Postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) are individuals who hold a PhD and wish to gain further experience in their area of research. As a valued member of the university community, PDFs work under the general supervision of a faculty member and may assist with the supervision of graduate students.

PDFs may receive funding from various sources secured by themselves or their faculty supervisors. Funding may be offered from the supervising faculty member’s grants or research resources. They may also secure funding from external sources, including competitive fellowship programs.
