Studies (CERES) at University of Toronto are accepting applications for the Petro Jacyk
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society for the 2018-2019

period of time in Ukraine (typically 2-4 weeks), conducting research and giving lecture(s)
at educational institutions. While at CERES, the Fellow is expected to devote her/his time
preparing his/her dissertation for publication and/or to start a new research project. The
A fellow will work closely with an appointed research supervisor and participate in activities
of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine. This will include guest lectures,
workshops, and conferences. In addition to research, he/she is expected to teach a one semester course (usually a seminar) that deals with contemporary Ukraine.

The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship is available to junior scholars in the social
sciences and humanities with a research and teaching focus on contemporary Ukraine. The
fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs (persons holding doctorates for no more than
three years at the time of application). The program is advertised internationally and does
not have any restrictions with respect to citizenship. However, the successful candidate
who is not Canadian will have to meet the necessary requirements in order to obtain a
work permit as mandated by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, prior to starting the
fellowship. The successful candidate will also have to have proof of doctoral degree by June
30, 2018.
