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 in both the European and non-European traditions. The project is focused on the historical period from roughly the 9th century through to the early 20th century. The successful applicant(s) will also assist in activities aligned with the project. Information about the project objectives can be found at newnarrativesinphilosophy.net  

Two post-doctoral positions are available for the 22-24 academic year, each to be held at one of the Partner institutions (Simon Fraser, Western, Guelph, McGill, Duke, Penn, Columbia, Monash, Sydney, Lyon-3, Nanterre, and Jyväskylä). While Canadian citizens and permanent residents 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 in methods in digital humanities would also be helpful. The research proposed must be significantly different and distinct from, or add significantly to, that of the applicant’s doctoral thesis.

Appointments will be for a period of 12 months, ideally September 1, 2023 - August 31, 2024 in the Northern Hemisphere. However, because of the ongoing 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, 2024.

Salary: CAD $50,000/year + benefits. Please submit electronically the completed application form, a letter of application that should explain how the proposed research is related to the Extending New Narratives project, your CV, and a description of a project to be worked on during the post-doc (no more than 750 words), and arrange for 3 letters of reference to be emailed to the ENN Management Committee at [email protected]. Review of applications will begin 3 January 2023.
