Description

Through unique research and training programs, Mitacs is developing the next generation of innovators with vital scientific and business skills. In partnership with companies, government and academia, Mitacs is supporting a new economy using Canada’s most valuable resource – its people.

Programs

Accelerate: Mitacs-Accelerate is Canada’s premiere research internship program. It connects companies with over 50 research-based universities through graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who apply their specialized expertise to business research challenges. Interns transfer their skills from theory to real-world application, while the companies gain a competitive advantage by accessing high-quality research expertise. Standard Mitacs-Accelerate applications are accepted throughout the year and projects may begin at any time.

For more information, please visit http://www.mitacs.ca/accelerate or contact your local Mitacs Representative

Elevate: The Mitacs Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship program supports recent PhD graduates to work on a joint industry-academia research project for two years. Fellows lead the collaboration and spend about half of their time at the university and half at the company. In addition, Mitacs provides the fellows with business skills training so they are well positioned to take on R&D leadership roles at the end of the program. Please check the submission deadline for this program at: http://www.mitacs.ca/elevate/apply
