Mitacs Elevate Postdoc Fellowships
Mitacs Elevate trains emerging research management leaders through an exclusive professional skills curriculum. Fellows gain theoretical and experiential training in areas such as project management and presentations. The knowledge transfer supported by Elevate increases research quality and overall efficiencies within a research group.
Mitacs Elevate is a postdoctoral fellowship with a customized research management training component. Fellows address complex challenges through:
- An exclusive research management curriculum for postdoctoral fellows in any discipline
- A two-year research project with a partner organization in need of high-level expertise
- A Partner Organization Business Case, developed to outline project objectives, risks, and stakeholder success criteria, and ensure project value
- Only supporting documentation resulting from SFU’s COI disclosure process* should be submitted at the same time when the application is submitted. Mitacs’ COI declaration form is not required. Academic Supervisors’ COIs are evaluated during the application review period and outcomes of both application and COI disclosure process are issued together.
Academic Supervisor and Partner Organization Contact cannot be the same person.
- Elevate – Mitacs’ COI declaration form is due to 4 weeks ahead of submission of the full application
SFU’s COI disclosure process* still applies here, regardless of the separate COI disclosure process determined by the sponsor.
*As a reminder, SFU’s COI disclosure process is as follows:
- Step 1. PI or student (i.e. the person who is declaring the conflict of interest) completes PART A of the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form and submits for “one up” signature (i.e., Supervisor, Chair or Director).
- Step 2. Supervisor, Chair or Director reviews disclosure and completes PART B, determining whether a conflict of interest exists and whether it can be managed or disallowed. If the COI can be managed, decision, reason and conditions are captured in COI Management Plan.
- Step 3.
a) If matter is research related, the Dean approves the COI Management Plan and the Dean/PI forwards it to Research Ethics.
b) If not research related, the PI directly submits it to Research Ethics after PART B has been completed.
- Step 4. Research Ethics reviews the Plan and:
a) if the conflict involves research with human participants, forwards the Plan to the Research Ethics Board for approval, or
b) if the project funds will be used to employ or reimburse expenses for PI’s immediate family, forwards the Plan to the Vice-President, Research for approval, and/or
c) notifies via e-mail the PI or student, supervisor, Chair or Director, Dean and Research Services, as appropriate, whether the COI management plan is accepted and approved or not.
