The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship during the 2019-20 academic year, with the possibility of an additional one-year renewal, to support junior scholars pursuing research in sexuality studies, LGBTQ2+ studies, and other intersecting fields of critical inquiry on sexuality. Our search committee welcomes proposals that span disciplinary boundaries. Applicants from all fields of the humanities and the social sciences are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant is expected to be in residence in the Greater Toronto Area during the period of their award and will join the faculty and students who make up our intellectual community and participate in the Centre’s day-to-day activities. The Postdoctoral Fellow will offer one undergraduate class for the Sexual Diversity Studies program and, at some point during the period of their award, deliver at least one public lecture that highlights their work. They will be able to utilize the vast faculty resources, manuscript archives, and library collections available at the University of Toronto, the Bonham Centre, and in the city. The successful candidate will receive a combined research and teaching stipend of $56,000, plus benefits, to support themselves for the duration of their fellowship.
Candidates must have completed their Ph.D. within a maximum of 3 years before the appointment date (August 1, 2019). To apply submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research project outline, writing sample, and three confidential letters of reference (submitted directly by the referees via email). At least one of the reference letters should speak to the applicant’s teaching experience and ability.
All application materials should be submitted via email by February 25, 2019 to The Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies (email@example.com). Fellowships will normally be awarded to candidates affiliated with a university other than the one that awarded the PhD. The fellowship is open to non-Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
