This CORIS information session will provide important information to assist Carleton Researchers who plan to apply for an Early Researcher Award (ERA) in the 2019 competition, as well as those who may be considering an application in future rounds. All interested researchers are encouraged to attend.

The session will provide an overview of the competition requirements (including internal selection process) and will offer tips for developing a successful application, as well as warnings  about common pitfalls to avoid. A panel of past ERA Expert Review Committee members will be in attendance to provide valuable additional insights.

Early Researcher Award (ERA): Offered by the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, these highly competitive awards are open to all disciplines, and are for faculty that are no more than 5 years from having started their academic research career and no more than 10 years from conferral of their PhD. To be competitive, researchers are encouraged to be actively involved in conducting research that has been supported by peer-reviewed funding and to demonstrate academic independence from previous supervisors.

Internal Carleton Deadline:        September 30, 2019
Agency Deadline:                      October 10, 2019

Each award to a leading researcher is a maximum of $100,000 and must be matched by an additional $50,000 from the researcher’s institution and/or a partner organization. The funds are to be used over a period of 5 years to fund eligible expenses for a research team of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates, and technicians.

**Applicants must be recommended by their Faculty in order to apply.  Researchers interested in pursuing an ERA are encouraged to speak with their Associate Dean Research and their Faculty Research Facilitator.
