The objective of the Post-Doctoral Fellowship is to support annually one of the most promising junior scholars studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby to advance academic understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society. The Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Petro Jacyk Education Foundation.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship has both research and teaching components.
The successful candidate will spend most of the engagement duration in residence at CERES and will devote their time preparing their dissertation for publication and/or to starting a new research project. The Fellow will work closely with their supervisor and participate in activities of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine and CERES. This will include attending guest lectures, workshops, and conferences related to the Fellow’s research interests. The Fellow will also have an opportunity to organize a conference (online or in person) on the topic of their research.
In addition to research, the Fellow will teach a course (typically during the winter term) on contemporary Ukraine. The specific focus of the course will be determined by the Fellow’s research interests.
The Fellow will also undertake research travel related to the study of Ukraine. Although immediate travel to Ukraine may not be possible according to the University of Toronto Safety Abroad guidelines, the Fellow will be encouraged to undertake trip(s) to conduct research and deliver lecture(s) at educational institutions with programs in Ukrainian studies.
Eligible applicants are junior scholars in social sciences and humanities with a research and teaching focus on contemporary Ukraine. The fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs (those who defended no more than three years before the submission of application).
