The Bayduza Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship for the Study of Modern and Contemporary Ukraine 2018-2019

 A Bayduza Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in the Humanities and Social Sciences will be offered in 2018–19 by the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies to support the study of modern and contemporary Ukraine. The fellowship is for one year (with the possibility of renewal, subject to review). Although all applications in fields associated with the humanities and social sciences will be considered, research proposals in the areas of identities, nationalism, regions, borders, social values, historical politics and memory, change, and conflict, will be given preference.

To qualify, applicants must have received a PhD (or Candidate of Sciences degree from Ukraine or another post-Soviet country) within the past four years at the time of application. Applicants who are scheduled to receive their degree by the end of June 2018 are also eligible to apply, if they submit confirmatory documents. The successful applicant will be expected to take up the post-doctoral appointment at CIUS from 1 September 2018, but no later than 30 September 2018. In addition to working on a research project, the Bayduza Research Fellow will be expected to assist and participate in the overall program planning and activities of CIUS.

This competition is open to Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada, and foreign nationals. The annual stipend is C$38,000. In addition to the stipend, the award includes economy airfare to and from Edmonton, and supplemental health benefits. An additional C$2,000 is available for research-related expenses. Recipients of the Bayduza Fellowship may not hold another fellowship concurrently.

The Bayduza Fellowship is funded by Dr. Jeanette Bayduza.
