Syme Training Fellowship Applications Now Being Accepted

The Institute for Work & Health is now accepting applications for its 12-month S. Leonard Syme Training Fellowship in Work & Health. The registration deadline for applications is early June.

The fellowships are for young researchers at the master’s or doctoral level intending to study work and health. Preference will be given to candidates whose research interests include understanding the social determinants of health and illness in work environments, evaluating workplace interventions to improve health, and/or exploring the measurement issues associated with either of these two areas. IWH is particularly interested in candidates who show a commitment to research that promises to reduce work-related injury, illness and disability in Ontario. In the spirit of Dr. Syme’s own contributions to research mentorship, candidates from any disciplinary background are eligible for training fellowships. A maximum of three smaller awards or one larger award may be offered. Awards are based on the merit of the research proposed.
