FoR Vancouver represent early-career researchers from across Vancouver and British Columbia, from SFU to UBC to UVic. Current job structures in science, and opportunities for funding, training, and support make careers in research unpredictable and insecure for many of Canada’s most passionate young scientists. However, a more sustainable career environment could secure world-leading science in Canada and BC, which will be vital to deal with health, environmental, agricultural, and economic challenges to come.
These are internationally vital issues. We stand with Future of Research, and Future of Research Canada, to help change the face of science.
