The Provost’s Program for Black and Indigenous Postdoctoral Scholars will contribute to the reduction of barriers for Black and Indigenous scholars in a supportive environment that fosters inclusivity, a sense of belonging, and a culture of engagement. The Program directly supports Waterloo’s strategic plan to strengthen sustainable and diverse communities. More specifically, the Program advances Indigenous initiatives and promotes a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusivity for all, improving the representation, participation, and engagement of equity-deserving groups within our community.
The Provost’s Program for Black and Indigenous Postdoctoral Scholars invites applications for the inaugural award, which provides successful candidates with annual support that includes a salary of $60,000 plus a benefits package. The scholars will also receive a one-time research fund of $5,000 at the time of their appointment. The value of the support demonstrates the importance of and commitment to building diverse communities at Waterloo. The term of the appointment is 2 years.
