Thanks to the generosity of the Associates of the University of Toronto, the Centre for the Study of the United States at the Munk School of Global Affairs seeks to appoint one or two Bissell-Heyd Research Fellows, for the period of August 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018.

Research Fellows are limited to existing Assistant and Associate Professors within the University of Toronto. Their research interests should be related to the study of the United States, broadly conceived. Research Fellows will be asked to coordinate a public research event or series of events with the assistance of the Centre’s Director. These events will be the initiative of the Fellow and will reflect their own interests. Centre resources will be available both to hold such events and to aid in procuring outside resources.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $10,000. This can be put towards course release, conditional upon approval of the Chair in their host department.

Interested faculty members should submit a current CV, a one page single-spaced description of the current research interests they wish to pursue within CSUS, and a brief description of a public research event or events they would want to undertake as part of the fellowship to the CSUS Interim Director, Prof. Rob Vipond, by May 30, 2017, at:, with a cc to:
