The Canada Program at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs invites applications for the William Lyon Mackenzie King Postdoctoral Fellowship. Two fellows will be appointed for the 2020–2021 academic year, with the possibility of extending the fellowship for one additional year—conditional on the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, WCFIA associated faculty, and the co-hosting academic department.

The fellowship is open to scholars in all disciplines who are engaged in US-Canada comparative research and teaching, with preference given to individuals working within the social sciences and humanities. For postdoctoral candidates who will have completed the PhD within 12 months of the August 1, 2020 start date, verification of completion of the degree will be required prior to the appointment. Those in possession of a PhD for more than five years are ineligible.

The fellowship provides an annual stipend of $68,000, which is supplemented by funding for research and for individual health insurance coverage. The fellow will be required to teach one course during the year, and will be expected to engage with the Canada Program and with the University’s wider community. Fellows receive shared office space at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and enjoy full access to the University’s library, archival, and computing resources.

TO APPLY: 
Candidates should submit: a letter of application describing their suitability for the fellowship; a curriculum vitae with a list of publications; a sample of their written work; a teaching portfolio, containing a statement on teaching experience and syllabi; and three letters of recommendation.
