Friday, June 11, 2021 5:00 pm


The Province of Ontario's Early Researcher Award (ERA) program provides support for new researchers working at publicly funded Ontario research institutions to build their research teams of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates, and technicians. The program will provide funding of up to $100,000 for each award for five years. The program is open to full-time research stream faculty members who started their academic careers on or after Jan 1, 2015 and completed their PhDs on or after Jan 1, 2010. To be competitive, researchers should be actively involved in conducting research that has been supported by peer-reviewed funding and demonstrate academic independence from previous supervisors.

Interested and eligible sociology faculty members should contact Sherri Klassen at sociology.research@utoronto.ca for more information and support in their applications.
