Post-doc fellowships (non-stipendiary)
The Post-Doctoral Fellowship is offered as a means for providing institutional support to academics with post-doctoral funding whose research falls within the broadly defined areas of the centre’s mandate.
The centre welcomes applications from all disciplinary backgrounds for projects that meet its mandate of promoting the scholarly study of religion in relation to any and all aspects of society and culture, both contemporary and historical. Topics may include, but are not limited to, examinations of religious themes within the areas of ethics, health, law, environment, technology, government and public policy, human conflict, art, literature, the media, and currents and debates in philosophy and the natural sciences.
All applications should contain a full copy of the proposal submitted for post-doctoral funding, including letters of reference and an up-to-date curriculum vitae. Applicants should ensure that their proposals contain a clear description of the project, including theoretical framework, methodology, research questions to be asked, and background bibliography. Please provide as well a statement of what you will be working on during your stay at the centre.
Ongoing. Applications should be submitted to the centre no later than three weeks before the deadline of the proposed post-doctoral funding body. The fellowship will take effect upon approval of post-doctoral funding.
Selection will be made by the CSRS Program Committee and will be based on the academic merit of the proposal, the views of the referees and the recent scholarly activity of the candidate.
Please forward one copy of your completed application to: Dr. Paul Bramadat, Director, Centre for Studies in Religion and Society, University of Victoria. Applications may be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail or courier to the CSRS.
