Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must normally have obtained their PhD or equivalent (including a recognized health professional degree plus a medical specialty) at a university or institution other than McGill University.

In such cases, a solid justification must be provided. Examples of valid justifications are scientific reasons (e.g., availability of specialized equipment/infrastructure or candidate’s unique expertise), medical reasons (e.g., proximity to required health care facilities), or family reasons (e.g., family obligations, a spouse’s career) which make it necessary to remain at McGill for both the PhD or equivalent and postdoctoral studies.

Please describe and justify any delay that would qualify you for an extension of the eligibility period.
