Ethics post doc / research fellowship at CREUM, Montreal
The Centre de recherche en éthique de l'Université de Montréal (CRÉUM) brings together researchers from the Université de Montréal, visiting researchers, post-docs, and graduate students working on subjects related to the mission of the Centre.
The Centre is inviting outstanding applications it could support for a Banting postdoctoral research fellowship. The Banting programme offers a prestigious fellowship of CAN$ 70 000 per year for a duration of two years.
Launched by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada
(SSHRC) in 2011, the programme insists on the synergy between the applicant's "individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career" as well as on the host institution's "commitment to the research program and environment with which the applicant is to be affiliated."
The CRÉUM offers, since its foundation in 2002, a research environment that successfully combines the research agendas of its members. One of the strengths of the Centre lies in mobilizing all available resources to help its members to develop their projects in one of five research axes (metaethics, ethics and politics, ethics and economics, ethics and health, ethics and the environment). The Centre organizes and hosts numerous academic events in these fields. A majority of its postdoctoral fellows go on to tenure-track positions when leaving the CRÉUM.
The Banting postdoctoral fellowship is open to all Canadian and international candidates who have completed their PhD between November 2009 and December 2012. Those interested in applying should contact us with a detailed CV as well as a 2-page research project. The deadline for this first contact with the CRÉUM is September 9th 2012. Note that basic French is a prerequisite for applying for a Banting postdoctoral fellowship through the CRÉUM.
