ECOSCOPE Graduate Trainees

ECOSCOPE provides stipends to UBC Master’s students for one year and Ph.D. students for two years.  To become an ECOSCOPE Graduate Trainee, prospective students must first be admitted into a UBC graduate program and then be accepted into the ECOSCOPE training program. All ECOSCOPE Graduate Trainees will be required to take the ECOSCOPE  core course, in addition to any course sequences associated with their primary department. International students are eligible to apply. Next application review deadline is May 6, 2019.

Postdoctoral Fellows

ECOSCOPE will support a limited number of postdoctoral fellow positions for outstanding applicants. ECOSCOPE postdoctoral fellows are aspiring entrepreneurs who personify intellectual energy and research expertise. They are required to take an active role in running workshops & discussion groups, and to facilitate collaborative science within the training program. Fellowship renewal will be contingent upon satisfactory performance.
