We invite applications for Fellows in Residence at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Fellows in Residence, who will be appointed either at the Senior Fellow or Distinguished Fellow levels, will spend one or two semesters at the Munk School, during which time they will be expected to engage with colleagues, participate in seminars, meet with students, and pursue their research or writing. Fellows are not expected to teach but may apply to available course teaching opportunities in our degree programs. This can be further discussed after an individual nomination is accepted by the Fellows Committee.

The intention for these fellowships is for outstanding individuals, across career stages, to develop meaningful relationships with members of the Munk School and University of Toronto community. As a result, Fellows in Residence are expected to be free from their regular professional commitments, to have a plan of the work they intend to pursue over the course of their fellowship and to spend most of their time in Toronto during their fellowship term.

Fellows in Residence should either hold a Ph.D. in a relevant academic discipline and be undertaking promising research related to core mandates of the School, and where appropriate may include Visiting Professors; or, they should have substantial experience and professional achievements related to Global Affairs and Public Policy, which they wish to develop into scholarship, engagement activities, or policy-related work over the course of their fellowship.

Fellows in residence will receive a stipend of up to $25,000 per semester, depending on their arrangements with their current employer (eg. paid leave). They will also be provided with shared office space and access to the University’s library and computing resources.

 Applications must include:

a) a letter of interest from the potential Fellow, covering what they intend to undertake during the Fellowship and the benefit of doing so within the Munk School community;

b) an up-to-date CV.

Applicants are also encouraged though not required to include a nominating letter from a Munk School faculty member or affiliate, including details of any proposed collaboration and/or the importance of the project being proposed.

 Applications will be considered at each of the three meetings of the Fellows Committee (December 15, 2021, February 15, 2022, and May 15, 2022).

Applications must be received by Ana Cardoso (ana.cardoso@utoronto.ca) no later than one week before each selection meeting (ie. Dec 8, 2021, Feb 8, 2022, May 8, 2022). 


For any questions or queries, please contact Peter Loewen or Ron Levi.
