Research, Sponsored and Endowed Chairs
The Faculty of Science is home to Canada Research Chairs created through contributions from individuals, government agencies, foundations and/or corporations, which provide targeted support in defined research fields.
Dr. Ned Budisa
NSERC Canada Research Chair in Chemical Synthetic Biology - Tier 1
Dr. Lorenzo Livi
NSERC Canada Research Chair in Complex Data - Tier 2
Dr. Samar Safi-Harb
NSERC Canada Research Chair in Extreme Astrophysics
Dr. Jörg Stetefeld

Research Chairs in Fundamental Science
Researchers in the Faculty of Science who are conducting outstanding fundamental research in the life, physical and computational science fields.
Dr. Gail Davoren, Life Sciences
Dr. Davoren’s research focuses on investigating the biology and behavior of important forage fish species in marine ecosystems and how this shapes the biology of top predators, primarily marine birds, and whales. Forage species lie at the core of complex marine food webs, providing essential linkages among trophic levels. The research aims to increase our ability to maintain the long-term productivity of northern marine ecosystems to sustain fisheries yields and conserve marine biodiversity.
Dr. H. Georg Schreckenbach, Physical Sciences
Dr. Schreckenbach’s research interests fall in the general area of theoretical and computational chemistry. More specifically, developing and applying state-of-the-art quantum chemical methods to study molecules, materials, and their properties. Such quantum chemical simulations are computationally rather demanding, and powerful modern computer systems are required.
Dr. Julien Arino, Computational Science
Dr. Arino’s research deals primarily with mathematical population dynamics in epidemiology and ecology, with a focus on modeling population movement. Dr. Arino studies the spatio-temporal spread of infectious diseases, with a focus on the relationship between modern commercial aviation and the fast-global spread of infectious pathogens.
Rh Awards and Vanier Scholars
The Rh Awards
The Rh Awards were established by the Winnipeg Rh Institute Foundation to support the advancement of knowledge in all fields at UM. Awards are given in two categories: The Dr. John M. Bowman Memorial Winnipeg Rh Institute Foundation Award, awarded to one established faculty member annually and the Terry G. Falconer Memorial Rh Institute Foundation Emerging Researcher Awards, awarded to seven early career faculty members.
Banting Fellows and Vanier Scholars
Banting postdoctoral fellows are the best postdocs in the world. The recipients are top-tier postdoctoral talent, nationally and internationally. This award positions Banting Fellows to succeed as research leaders. Only seventy fellowships are awarded across Canada annually, valued at $140,000 over two years.
Named after Major-General Georges P. Vanier, the first francophone Governor General of Canada, the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Vanier CGS) program helps Canadian institutions attract highly qualified doctoral students.
