The open thinking of researchers at UBC and our affiliated teaching hospitals has built an international reputation for excellence in research and innovation. Our research activities connect us with peer institutions, government, non-profit, and industry partners around the world, and the impacts of our research benefit local, national and global communities.

We provide strategic support to our researchers to create a collaborative environment where new ways of thinking and innovative ideas are embraced and nurtured, and where leading thinkers can contribute to diverse, interdisciplinary and international issues affecting society.

Postdoctoral Fellows make an indispensable contribution to increasing the quality and excellence of UBC's research and scholarship. Learn more about postdoctoral opportunities at UBC:

Many new faculty members are drawn to UBC – and choose to remain here – because of a well-supported and open-minded research environment. We encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and allow investigators the latitude to respond to emerging lines of inquiry, or to ask fundamental questions about the world, while providing the infrastructure they require to pursue answers.
