Eligibility The CCAC is currently accepting applications from suitably qualified candidates to work on ethical issues relating to the use of animals in science. The CCAC fellowship is ideal for candidates who would like to expand the use of their science background to pursue careers at the interface of science and society. The primary aim of the fellowship is to train highly qualified personnel for the long-term advancement of ethics in science. It is intended to provide support to recent doctoral or masters level graduates, current masters or doctoral students, or other individuals with comparable levels of combined education and training. Currently, the CCAC is offering a fellowship in the Three Rs Program. The fellowship would focus on the implementation of replacement, reduction and refinement alternatives, in an area pertinent to the candidate's background and interest. Eligibility: Applications from Canadian citizens with a relevant graduate degree are preferred. The candidate must have a solid understanding of science in order to be able to explore the questions underpinning the ethical issues to be addressed. He/she must also have the ability to apply this knowledge in a different framework. Ideally, the candidate should have a strong interest in bioethics, and will be encouraged to pursue additional training, including course work where appropriate. Candidates with more than three years of post-doctoral experience at the time of the competition deadline will normally not be eligible for an award.
