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.

Please contact your Office of Research Services to find out more about this program.

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 research institute, community college, or university.

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 28, 2019 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 within the same application.

There are several key changes to the RAI program this year: 1) The award amounts have increased in line with inflation, 2) the application form is shorter with word limits and 3) the evaluation criteria are publicly available on our website.

Graduate Research Assistantships are awarded at $12,000 each. Undergraduate Assistantships are $6,000 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 either industry, NGOs, or other institutions 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. The full criteria for evaluation of proposals, as well as sample commercialisation plans, can be found on our website at http://www.nbif.ca.

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

Research Professionals Initiative

NBIF is pleased to announce the call for applications for the Research Professionals Initiative, formerly known as the Research Technicians Initiative (RTI).  Applications can be made through the Research Services Portal http://research-services.nbif.ca/ and must be submitted by January 28, 2019 11:59PM AST. 

The Research Professionals Initiative (RPI) 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 research professionals.

There are several key changes to the RPI program this year: 1) The name has changed from RTI, 2) the award amounts have increased in line with inflation, 3) the application form is shorter with word limits and 4) the evaluation criteria are publicly available on our website.

Funding is provided to a maximum of $90,000 per position created, primarily for salary and benefits. The funding will be evenly spread over three years ($30,000 per year). Matching funds can include direct contributions to the professional’s salary and benefits by the college or university, expenses related to the professional covered by other funding sources, grants obtained by the professional, and in kind contributions. The amount requested in the RPI proposal must be at least evenly matched, e.g. if $90,000 is requested then $90,000 in matching funds must be provided.

While applications from all disciplines of research are welcome, those research programs that demonstrate value-added relationships with either industry, NGOs, or other institutions and can demonstrate a potential for the commercialization of an innovation will have a competitive advantage.
