WILLIAM LYON MACKENZIE KING
The Canada Program at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center
for International Affairs invites applications for the William Lyon
Mackenzie King Postdoctoral Fellowships. Two fellows will be
appointed for the 2015-2016 academic 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 fellowships are 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 July 1, 2015, 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.
Each fellowship provides an annual stipend of $68,000, which is supplemented by funding for research and for health insurance coverage. Fellows 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 will receive shared office space at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and will enjoy full access to the University's library, archival, and computing resources.
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.
