Published on: February 18, 2021

Ralph McGinn, former chair of the WorkSafeBC Board of Directors, was a lifelong advocate and leader in the field of occupational health and safety in Canada and internationally. To commemorate his tremendous contributions, WorkSafeBC has established the Ralph McGinn Postdoctoral Fellowship award.

We’re looking for recent doctoral graduates who will help lead and improve occupational health and safety and work disability in Canada. The award is $50,000 a year, for up to three years, and is open to researchers holding a postdoctoral position at a Canadian university or research institution.

The fellowship is one of the research funding opportunities offered by our Research Services department. To learn more or to apply, please see our Postdoctoral Fellowship page.
