Talent Recruitment Funding

Doing research means long days and multiple demands. Since most projects involve more work than any one person can do, NBIF's talent recruitment funding helps New Brunswick researchers hire the talent they need to succeed. Below are the three types of positions NBIF will partially fund:

Professors

Attracting the right talent is imperative for all organizations focused on innovation, and today, the competition for that talent is global. NBIF provides funding for hiring outstanding professors and researchers and investing in some of the resources they will need to succeed.

Funding for new professors is awarded up to $200,000. Up to 50% of the award can be allocated to the candidate’s first-year salary. Matching funds can include existing funding attached to the candidate, paid release time, in-kind contributions, and contributions from other funding sources. Funding is disbursed to the applicant organization only after the candidate has accepted a tenure-track employment offer, and must be utilized within one year of the date of the transaction.

Applicant organizations must demonstrate the candidate’s potential to develop innovations that fit with one of NBIF's strategic industries to meet the eligibility criteria for this particular funding mechanism. Formal requests for funding must be submitted by a research organization or the official research services department of a New Brunswick community college or university.

Considering the competitive nature of recruiting professors and researchers, applications are immediately reviewed and decided upon very quickly. Applications are to be submitted in the form of a detailed proposal. To learn more about what to include in your proposal, please contact us.

Research Assistants

NBIF is pleased to announce the call for applications for the Research Assistantship Initiative.  Applications can be made through the Research Services Portal http://research-services.nbif.ca/ and must be submitted by January 27, 2017 11:59PM AST. 

The Research Assistantships Initiative (RAI) is a joint initiative between NBIF and the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labor (PETL). It provides applied researchers some of the funding they need to hire undergraduate and graduate student research assistants. Researchers may apply for more than one assistant.

Researchers can be funded for more than one graduate research assistantship in any specific round. Graduate Research Assistantships are awarded at $10,000 each. Undergraduate Assistantships are $5,000 each. RAI contributions can be used to top up other funding sources and can be allocated to one or more students. Funding is advanced to the college or university first, and then disbursed to the student(s) in the form of a salary, fellowship or stipend. Ideally, all funds are to be used within one year, however, any unused funding is automatically extended for one additional year with NBIF approval. RAI funding is not transferable to other colleges or universities.

While applications from all disciplines of research are welcome, those research programs that demonstrate value-added relationships with the private sector and can demonstrate a potential for the commercialization of an innovation will have a competitive advantage. All applicants will need to articulate the economic impact of their project on the Province of New Brunswick.

Researchers are strongly encouraged to register on the Research Services Portal http://research-services.nbif.ca/ well in advance of the application due date.
