Bank of Montreal Visiting Scholar in Women's Studies for the academic year 2019-2020
In 1992, the Bank of Montreal established a Women's Studies Scholars Program at the University of Ottawa to encourage research that would have direct positive impacts for women. Since that time, the Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies has conducted an annual competition offering the opportunity to a feminist researcher having completed her or his Ph.D. to pursue his or her studies in an interdisciplinary, multicultural and bilingual environment, while sharing the research results with the university community.
The Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies is pleased to announce that Dr. Carolyn Whitzman has been selected as the 2019-2020 Bank of Montreal Visiting Scholar in Women’s Studies.
The Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies at the University of Ottawa is inviting applications for its Bank of Montreal Visiting Scholar in Women's Studies for 2020-2021. The purpose of this fund is to attract highly qualified researchers working on feminist, women's and gender issues, broadly defined. The Visiting Scholar's stay should be from three (3) to six (6) months within the university's academic year, from September to April. The recipient will receive a maximum of $8,000, which may be used to supplement research and/or travel expenses. Scholars with alternative funding will also be considered. The Visiting Scholar will be required to present their ongoing research project in conferences and/or seminars and to interact with the community of students and colleagues. Additional information will be provided on request.
The Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies invites applications from Canadian and non-Canadian scholars, both tenured and untenured faculty, and from post-doctoral or independent scholars who are pursuing critical feminist research. Individuals must have a Ph.D. to be considered for this position.
Applications should include a letter of intent, a curriculum vitae, a detailed statement of the research project (2 pages maximum), copies of, or links to, recent publications, the dates of the proposed stay at the University of Ottawa, and the names of two referees.
