By July 23, 2018No Comments

Nine postdoctoral fellows from the University of British Columbia have received 2018-2019 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships, out of seventy fellowships awarded nationally. These prestigious fellowships provide each researcher with $70,000 each year for two years, to support research that will positively contribute to Canada’s economic, social, and research-based growth.

Tahia Devisscher, one of this year’s Banting recipients says the fellowship will help her advance her own research agenda and open doors when applying for faculty positions in the future. “The field of urban forestry is relatively new, and this award will certainly give me a unique opportunity to make an important contribution to this field of research in my career, and ultimately support more resilient, green cities.”
