The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) invites outstanding early-career researchers from across the humanities and the natural, biomedical, life, and social sciences to join one of four interdisciplinary research programs that address some of the most important questions facing science and humanity.   

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program is designed to accelerate the development of early-career researchers in their pivotal first years as independent principal investigators in an academic or research institution, with responsibilities for research and teaching. CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars are emerging leaders in their field, with a high-impact record of innovative research, who are motivated to advance their influence through interdisciplinary collaboration with some of the world’s most renowned researchers, expand their networks, access mentorship and training in leadership and communication, and gain cross-sector exposure to position themselves as influential leaders and agents of change in academia and beyond.

This year's participating CIFAR research programs are: Future Flourishing; Gravity & the Extreme Universe; Humanity's Urban Future; and The Multiscale Human. CIFAR will begin accepting applications for the 2024–2026 cohort on 30 August 2023. The application deadline is 30 October 2023. For more information, please visit the CIFAR program webpage.
