Call for Applicants:

Bissell-Heyd Research Fellow:

Centre for the Study of the United States

extended Deadline: july 21st, 2021


The Centre for the Study of the United States at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy seeks to appoint one Bissell-Heyd Research Fellow for the period of September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022.

Research Fellows are limited to current Assistant and Associate Professors at 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 Centre’s assistance. These events will be the initiative of the Fellow and will reflect their own interests. Centre resources will be available to coordinate events and to aid in procuring additional resources, if needed.

Fellows will receive a stipend of $10,000 to support the costs of the research event. In exceptional cases, where external research funding has already been secured, the stipend may be used towards course release, conditional upon approval of the Fellow’s home-department Chair.

To apply, interested faculty members should submit:

  1. A current CV
  2. A brief description of their current research interests (approx. 500 words).
  3. A description of a public research event they propose to mount as part of the fellowship.

Please submit applications to the CSUS Director, Professor Nicholas Sammond, at:, with a cc to: by July 21st, 2021.
