Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship, tenable for two years, any time after April 1, 2022. This is a research position, but some additionally remunerated teaching is possible, if desired.

AOS: open.
Citizenship: open. 

PhD must be completed prior to commencing fellowship; applicants who have completed their PhD prior to December 13, 2019 are ineligible. $50,000 per annum plus benefits and a one-time $4000 research/travel grant.

In case of a conflict, the instructions and deadlines provided in this ad override the guidelines on the application form and on the University webpage.

To receive full consideration, applications (including the letters of recommendation, research proposal and research experience statement) should be tailored to the Killam postdoctoral fellowship, address the applicant’s fit with the department and be written in a style accessible to non-experts. Applicants should choose a University of Alberta supervisor (having consulted with the faculty member) prior to submitting an application. Supervisor’s letter of support and biosketch is not required at this time.

Applications should include:

  1. a completed application form (please submit a signed and dated electronic scan of the completed application form);
  2. a CV (including a list of academic honors, awards and publications);
  3. a research proposal (maximum one page single-spaced) describing the applicant’s proposed postdoctoral research project;
  4. a research experience statement (maximum two pages single-spaced) describing how the applicant’s academic background has prepared her/him to carry out the proposed research project; and
  5. graduate transcripts; and
  6. three letters of recommendation sent to the Department separately.

Successful candidates must provide an official copy of their PhD transcript before taking up the fellowship.  

Applications and letters should be sent electronically to Kathleen Dean, Executive Assistant, Department of Philosophy: [email protected] (subject line: Killam Search).

Deadline for receipt of applications: November 15, 2021. (This internal deadline set by the Philosophy Department overrides the official university-wide deadline of submissions listed in the application guidelines.) 

Fellowships are awarded in a university-wide competition. The University of Alberta is committed to the principle of equity in employment. We welcome diversity, and encourage applications from all qualified candidates, including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons. Inquiries only may be addressed to Professor Ingo Brigandt, Chair of the Killam Search ([email protected]).
