The call for applications for the Accelerate Industrial Postdoc is now closed.

The Mitacs Accelerate Industrial Postdoc provides one, two or three years of funding – valued at $55,000 per year – for a postdoctoral fellow. This special initiative offers better leveraging than standard Mitacs Accelerate internships.

Postdoctoral fellows partner with a company or not-for-profit organization and build a longer-term research collaboration.

Postdoctoral fellows can complete projects for up to three years of funding and need to be within five years of PhD completion at the start of their project to be eligible for this Mitacs program.

Postdoctoral fellows are not eligible for internships/fellowships at organizations where they have already been a full-time employee. Contact your Business Development representative if you have questions about eligibility.

  Per year
Partner contribution $25,000
Total research funding  $55,000
Minimum postdoc stipend/salary $50,000
Maximum funds for research costs $5,000


Companies and organizations gain a competitive advantage by adding a highly-skilled member to their team while postdoctoral fellows apply their expertise to real-world problems and build business-ready skills.
