Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Postdoctoral Fellowships at Laurier are informed by the same core values in our values, vision and guiding principles. The postdoctoral experience at Laurier is informed by our focus on:

  • Integrated communities of learning and application.
  • Cultures of diversity and inclusivity.
  • Community and global engagement.
  • The importance of purpose and citizenship.

It is expected that postdoctoral fellows will in turn contribute to Laurier's core principles and institutional domains, as laid out in the university’s Academic Plan.
