Vector Postgraduate Affiliate Program: Renewal of Affiliation

As your two-year affiliation is coming to an end, please fill out the form below by January 11, 2021, to indicate whether you wish to be renewed for an additional one-year term at Vector. There are a limited number of renewal positions available. While it will be a competitive process we encourage you to apply. Your application will be reviewed by an internal committee who will make the final recommendations to Richard Zemel, Research Director, and Garth Gibson, President & CEO.  

You will be considered for continued  affiliation status based on the following criteria: 

  • PhD students and post-doctoral fellows conducting research on novel methods or applications in machine learning.

  • The extent to which your research will continue strengthening and supporting the vision and mission of the Vector Institute in addition to the potential for engagement with the Vector research community and industry sponsors. 

  • The extent to which you engaged with the Vector research community and industry sponsors during the term of the postgraduate affiliation.

  • Affiliation with an institution in Ontario.

For those of you who do not choose to continue your affiliation or whose affiliation comes to an end, Vector is in the midst of developing an Alumni Program that you will be transitioned to.


Applications must be submitted by Monday, January 11, 2021.
