Collaborative Graduate Program in Migration and Ethnic Relations

Mitacs Postdoctoral Fellows

Over the last three years, the MER Centre has hosted five Mitacs-funded postdoctoral fellows, including Melissa Stachel Fellin, Secil Erdogan, Jennifer Long, Rui Zhang, and Stelian Medianu. These postdoctoral fellows have worked with various community organizations and companies including the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre, the Achievement Centre, Career Edge, Conseil Economique et Social d’Ottawa Carleton, and The Majdoub Group Financial Services. In 2013, the postdoctoral fellows hosted a roundtable, co-funded by Mitacs and the MER Centre, on Cultural Competency in the Workplace, which attracted attendees from across the province. The Mitacs fellowships have provided opportunities for developing skills in community-based research and networking opportunities for the fellows.
