IPP Early Career Theory Fellowship

The Institute of Particle Physics Early Career Theory Fellowship is designed to enable outstanding theory Ph.D. students and postdocs to be present for a period between two weeks and six months at an international university, laboratory, or institute. The purpose of the fellowship is to encourage scientific collaboration between theorists in Canada and those abroad, and also to enhance the career prospects of the junior researcher.

The inaugural competition is in autumn 2019, with results announced in November. Future annual competitions, starting in 2020, will occur in the spring.
