Job description

Supported by the SSHRC Partnership Grant, Extending New Narratives in the History of Philosophy, postdoctoral fellows will conduct research related to the retrieval and recognition of philosophical works by women and individuals from other marginalized groups from the medieval period through to the early 20th century, as well as assist in activities aligned with the project. While we are currently developing the website for the precursor to this project [newnarrativesinphilosophy.net] to reflect this new project, some information about the new project objectives can be found at newnarrativesinphilosophy.net/extending-new-narratives  The new project will extend many activities and develop new ones to cover not only the early modern period but also the medieval period, Renaissance, 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries (up to 1940). Two (2) post-doctoral positions are available for this academic year, to be held at one of the Partner institutions (SFU, Western, Guelph, McGill, Duke, Penn, Columbia, Monash, Sydney, Lyon-3, Nanterre, and Jyväskylä): the two postdocs will not be appointed at the same institution. While Canadians will be able to be appointed to positions at non-Canadian institutions, non-Canadians can be appointed to positions only at Canadian institutions. 

The successful applicants will have a PhD in Philosophy (within the past five years), expertise in a period in the history of philosophy, and a demonstrated interest in research and pedagogy involving women thinkers and thinkers from other marginalized groups of that period. Experience with a range of digital media would also be helpful. 

Appointments will be for a period of 12 months, ideally September 1, 2020-August 31, 2021. However, because of the Covid-19 situation, and potential delays in securing necessary documentation (work permits, etc.), we are open to appointments that start as late as January 1, 2021.

Salary: CAD $50,000/year + benefits. Please email completed application form, a letter of application, CV, description of a project to be worked on during the post-doc (no more than 750 words), and 3 letters of reference electronically to the ENN Management Committee at new_narratives@sfu.ca. Review of applications will begin 15 July 2020.
