CITA National Fellowships

CITA is a national center for theoretical astrophysics located at the University of Toronto. As part of its mandate to promote research throughout Canada, the Institute provides partial support for postdoctoral fellows working in theoretical astrophysics or closely related fields at Canadian universities other than the University of Toronto, through its National Fellows program.

The responsibility for identifying and nominating potential CITA National Fellows who will work at a given university lies with the faculty at the university. Only faculty at Canadian universities may submit nominations. If you are interested in a CITA National Fellowship, please check other Canadian university websites for positions available.


For each prospective fellow, a nomination package consisting of a curriculum vitae, a bibliography, a statement of proposed research, and three letters of recommendation should be forwarded to the CITA Director along with a supporting letter written by a member of faculty stating how the applicant is expected to contribute to the local research program. There is no limit to the number of nominations a member of faculty may submit however, anyone submitting more than one nomination is asked to rank their nominees in order of preference, and give reasons for the ordering. The applications will be examined by CITA Council and ranked along with, and using the same standards as, applications for postdoctoral research fellows positions to be held at CITA.

The next round of applications will start in the Fall of 2014. Please check back in September for further submission instructions.
