Each year CAMH provides opportunities to the next generation of scientists: today’s undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. Train in a unique learning environment and help contribute to the breakthrough mental illness research and treatments of tomorrow.
Learn with world-class scientists and contribute to our knowledge of mental health.
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is the leading mental health research facility in Canada, and one of the largest in the world. Each year, more than 300 undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctoral fellows participate in our unique learning environment. Emphasizing a diverse range of translational scientific studies—from bench to clinic to community research—the Office of Research Training is dedicated to enhancing the experience of all trainees.
CAMH is a great environment for students, because there's no shortage of support to pursue areas of research they're interested in.

Research Training Opportunities
Qualified students or post-doctoral fellows interested in working within CAMH’s Research Program can find a range of opportunities. Undergraduate or graduate student placements are available on an ongoing basis, depending on the needs of individual scientists. To find a placement in your area of interest, we suggest you contact our scientific staff directly and include your CV. Students can also find positions through co-op arrangements with their university or through volunteer or paid work in the Research Program.
Prospective post-doctoral fellows may apply for positions through a dedicated post-doctoral fellowship program at CAMH. The deadline for these fellowships is typically toward the end of the calendar year, although other opportunities may arise throughout the year.
Opportunities for students and post-doctoral fellow include:
The Sunrise Challenge presented by Sun Life invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.
