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. Postdocs will also be invited to contribute to the objectives of the project in ways aligned with their research. Information about the project objectives can be found at newnarrativesinphilosophy.net  
 
Two (2) post-doctoral positions are available for the 2021-22 academic year. One will be held at Simon Fraser University, and the other will be held at one of the other Partner institutions (Western, Guelph, McGill, Duke, Penn, Columbia, Monash, Sydney, Lyon-3, Nanterre, and Jyväskylä). While Canadian citizens and permanent residents can be appointed to positions at non-Canadian institutions, non-Canadians will be appointed to positions at Canadian institutions only. 
 
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 in some aspect of digital humanities is also desirable. The research proposed must be significantly different and distinct from, or add significantly to, that related to the applicant’s doctoral thesis.
 
Appointments will be for a period of 12 months, ideally September 1, 2021- August 31, 2022. However, because of the Covid-19 situation, and potential delays in securing necessary documentation (work permits, etc.), start dates may be adjusted, but will not go past January 1, 2022.
 
Salary: CAD $50,000/year + benefits. Please email completed application form (see below), a letter of application (which should articulate how the proposed research project relates to the Extending New Narratives project), CV, and a description of the project to be worked on during the post-doc (no more than 750 words), and three (3) letters of reference electronically to the ENN Management Committee at new_narratives@sfu.ca. Review of applications will begin March 25, 2021.
