Job description

Research Area: Animal ethics, law and public policy. While we interpret animal ethics, law and public policy broadly, and welcome applications from various disciplines that study human-animal relations including political science, law, philosophy, sociology and environmental studies, we are looking in particular for research that critically examines the moral, legal and political dimensions of how human-animal relations are governed.

Remuneration: $45,000 per annum.   As part of this full-time salary, the incumbent will teach a 0.5 credit University course per year in animal ethics (or a cognate subject).

Applicants must have submitted their doctoral dissertation by that date or be within five years of having received their doctorate.

Demonstrated expertise in animal ethics, law and public policy, show evidence of teaching potential, and be able to participate constructively in departmental and collegial activities.

The Postdoctoral Fellow appointed to this position is expected to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the Department, and to collaborate in developing initiatives related to the promotion of the analysis and understanding of animal ethics (such as workshops, conferences, public lectures, etc.)
