Postdoctoral fellowships


It is never too early to start thinking about how you will begin your post-PhD career.

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology's Faculty of Social Science and Humanities (FSSH) invites potential applicants for Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellowships to consider an affiliation with us as a host university.

FSSH covers a wide range of subject areas. Our current programs include Communication and Digital Media Studies, Criminology, Legal Studies, Political Science, and Forensic Psychology, and we are developing programs in Liberal Studies and Sustainability. Our faculty is also in the process of developing a university-wide introductory elective and undergraduate subject minor in Indigenous Studies. If you are interested in applying, peruse the faculty experts page to identify potential supervisors with mutual interests. 

As eligibility for the fellowship depends on affiliation with a recognized university or research institution, the university seeks to endorse a qualified candidate in its application. Successful candidates may also be eligible for teaching opportunities, if appropriate. Successful recipients would begin their fellowship in September 2019. Internal and external deadlines will be announced in early 2018, but if you are interested, don't hesitate to contact us for more information. 

Prospective candidates should contact Peter Stoett, PhD, Dean, FSSH, for further information.
