Job description

The Centre de recherche en éthique de l'Université de Montréal (CRÉUM) invites applications for its visiting research fellow programme for the period of June 1st 2013 to May 31st 2014. The length of the stay can vary depending on the dossier and the kind of research envisaged.

The mission of the CRÉUM is to contribute to research in ethics and to the quality of graduate training in all fields of ethics from meta-ethics to applied questions.

The centre encourages applications from researchers working on themes related to the research axes of the CRÉUM: ethics and economics, ethics and the environment, ethics and health, ethics and politics, meta-ethics. The centre also admits applications from other disciplines, provided their research is directly linked to questions in ethics.

The fellowship for visiting research fellows varies with the length of the stay and with the circumstances (e.g. salary loss during the stay) and can attain a maximum of 25 000 $CAN. The selected candidates will have access to an office as well as to the infrastructure of the Université de Montréal (libraries, gym, etc.). CREUM staff will assist them in planning their stay.

In return, the visiting research fellows will conduct their research project as submitted, participate in the academic activities of the centre (conferences, workshops & seminars), and present their work in progress at the centre.

The Université de Montréal is a francophone institution. Candidates must have sufficient knowledge of the French language to be able to participate in the activities of the centre.

Applications will be evaluated according to the following criteria: the nature and quality of the research project and its relevance to the mission of the CRÉUM; the quality of previous research by the applicant; potential benefits to the applicant from a stay at the centre.

Candidates should send the following documents to the CRÉUM:

  • their curriculum vitae
  • a text published over the last three years
  • a research project of up to 1500 words
  • two letters of reference (to be sent directly to the CRÉUM before the deadline)

The deadline for applications is January 15th 2013.

Please send your dossier, by email, to Valéry Giroux, CRÉUM coordinator.
