HHMI expects to appoint up to 20 new investigators who will be among the most creative and promising in the nation.


CIFAR Research Workshops: Call for Proposals

Submissions accepted on a rolling basis

The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) is announcing the launch of a new opportunity to explore key questions of global importance that can best be addressed through interdisciplinary, international teams. The research workshop program is designed for short-term, time-limited interactions of 10 to 20 people. Topics selected for workshops should have the potential to impact multiple sectors of society internationally. Topics that are timely in the context of world events, high-risk or which have strong potential for advancement or refinement through a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach are encouraged.
