Centre for Urban Environment’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship
The Centre for Urban Environments (CUE) (www.urbanenvironment.ca) at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) seeks applications for a fully-funded one-year CUE Post-doctoral Fellowship. The topic is open to studies on urban environments in the social sciences or humanities. CUE’s vision is to promote healthier, sustainable urban environments for all life, with a mission of providing local, national and global leadership in research, policy, education, training and public engagement on urban environmental issues. Topics of research by the CUE post-doc may include, but are not restricted to: urban environmental policy, urban socio-ecology, urban anthropology (e.g., indigenous communities, culture, religion), human well-being and accessibility in an urban environmental context, environmental economics of cities and the role of art in urban landscapes. Proposed research that bridges traditional disciplines (e.g., urban socioecology and climatology) is an asset and should be highlighted in the cover letter and research statement. Before applying, applicants are required to identify one primary supervisor and one secondary supervisor who will jointly supervise and are willing to support the PDF applicant. Please note that each faculty member can be the primary sponsor of a single applicant and the primary sponsor should be tenured or tenure stream research faculty, affiliated with CUE and have a primary appointment at UTM. The secondary sponsor can be either teaching or research stream and be appointed to any campus at the University of Toronto.
