Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunities

The Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University invites applications for the Peacock Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the field of Comparative Politics/International Relations, with expertise in Russia and/or the post-communist region. This fellowship provides an opportunity to spend time in an intellectually stimulating environment conducting research, writing, and teaching on topics in any area of post-communist politics. Total salary: $52,150 minimum (unlike some post-doctoral fellowships, this PDF is taxable because it carries full Queen’s benefits). This sum will include teaching two half-courses about Russia and the post-communist region. The fellowship is tenable for 12 months from 1 July or 1 September 2018. The fellowship may be renewed at the Department’s discretion for one further year.
Eligibility: preference will be given to citizens and permanent residents of Canada who are not already in a tenure-stream position. Candidates must have been awarded a doctorate in political science from a recognized university no earlier than 1 January 2015; or have completed the doctorate no earlier than 1 January 2011 but have had their career interrupted or delayed for family reasons; or expect to have completed all degree requirements by 1 July 2018.
