NSERC scholarships and fellowships selection committees review all eligible PDF applications. The selection committees evaluate each application according to the selection criteria described in the Selection committee guide for Postgraduate Scholarships – Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowships programs . Note that in order to address systemic barriers that limit the full participation of all talented individuals, NSERC aims for the proportion of short-listed or funded applications from those who self-identify as members of underrepresented groups to be at least similar to the proportion of applications received from these groups. This equalization process is performed as needed, and only amongst meritorious applications. The selection committees are organized according to the following broad discipline categories: cellular and molecular biology chemical, biomedical and materials science engineering chemistry civil and industrial engineering computing sciences electrical engineering evolution and ecology geosciences mathematical sciences mechanical engineering physics and astronomy plant and animal biology psychology

Carleton University

The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the development of several network optimization models of the Canadian energy system. These models will support decisions on where to deploy Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs, like direct air capture of CO2 (DAC) and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)) to minimize grid energy requirements and maximize renewable energy use. In addition to model development, the post-doctoral researcher will be expected to maintain high-quality scholarly output in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The overall goal of this research is to guide successful near-term deployment of these technologies, which form a cornerstone of the Canadian government’s 2030 Emissions Reductions Plan. This research is part of a six-year grant supported by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). As such, the postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to brief ECCC and other government and industry stakeholders on the results of the research and modeling efforts.
