In order to determine if a postdoc will be unionized, we must look at the funding structure of the fellowship. If 50% or more of the minimum salary will be paid through the supervisor’s research fund, the postdoc is considered unionized.
If the postdoc comes with their own funding (the funding is directly in their name), they will be considered non-unionized.

The first method, and most common method, is to research faculty members who share your research interests/field of study and contact them directly to inquire about a potential fellowship. Please check the Carleton University website under the faculty/department/school/institute in which you are interested and then reach out to faculty members who may be a good match.
