The Petro Jacyk Education Foundation and the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at University of Toronto are accepting applications for the Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society for the 2018-2019 academic year. The objective of the Post-Doctoral Fellowship is to support annually one of the most promising junior scholars studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby to advance academic understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society. The Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Petro Jacyk Education Foundation.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship has both research and teaching components. The successful candidate will spend most of the Fellowship period in residence at CERES and a period of time in Ukraine (typically 2-4 weeks), conducting research and giving lecture(s) at educational institutions. While at CERES, the Fellow is expected to devote her/his time preparing his/her dissertation for publication and/or to start a new research project. The Fellow will work closely with an appointed research supervisor and participate in activities of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine. This will include guest lectures, workshops, and conferences. In addition to research, he/she is expected to teach a one-semester course (usually a seminar) that deals with contemporary Ukraine.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship is available to junior scholars in the social sciences and humanities with a research and teaching focus on contemporary Ukraine. The fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs (persons holding doctorates for no more than three years at the time of application). The program is advertised internationally and does not have any restrictions with respect to citizenship. However, the successful candidate who is not Canadian will have to meet the necessary requirements in order to obtain a work permit as mandated by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, prior to starting the fellowship. The successful candidate will also have to have proof of doctoral degree by June 30, 2018.
