|Sujet: Postdoctoral Fellowships in Global Governance at McGill University in Canada, 2015-2017 Ven 6 Fév 2015 - 15:20|| |
We are pleased to announce that two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Global Governance will be awarded for a two-year period starting in September 2015. Each Fellowship includes a yearly stipend of $55,000 CAD and a yearly research allowance of $10,000 CAD.
Postdoctoral Fellows in Global Governance will be selected based on the demonstrated ways that their proposed research can contribute to developing better policies for global governance, as well as the fit between their proposed research and academic resources at McGill. Global governance is considered to include the formal and informal rules and practices designed to promote sustainable, inclusive development and democratic governance. While such rules and practices would typically be applicable at the supranational and transnational levels, they also include local or national examples that demonstrate the potential for wider application.
Fellowships are open to all nationalities and disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Scholars who received their PhD after August 31, 2012 or who will have completed all PhD degree requirements by July 1, 2015 are eligible to apply. Applicants who do not have the PhD in hand at the time of application must include a letter from their Department Chair specifying the date of the dissertation defense. Successful applicants who do not complete all requirements for their PhD by July 1, 2015, will have their offer of award withdrawn.
A world-renowned university located in the cosmopolitan metropolis of Montreal, Canada, McGill University has earned an international reputation for scholarly achievement and scientific discovery. Founded in 1821, McGill has 21 faculties and professional schools, which offer more than 300 programs from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. McGill attracts renowned professors and researchers from around the world and top students from more than 150 countries, creating one of the most dynamic and diverse educational environments in North America.
The Institute for the Study of International Development was founded in 2008, consolidating McGill’s strengths in research and teaching of development issues. Responsible for the Faculty of Art’s second largest undergraduate degree program, ISID also delivers graduate and executive education programs. Its international advisory board includes members with government, civil society and business backgrounds.
All applicants must be in contact with a full-time faculty member at McGill in advance to identify an appropriate supervisor for his or her work (see http://www.mcgill.ca/).
