The Chair in German-Canadian Studies at the University of Winnipeg invites qualified candidates to apply for the one-year Postdoctoral Fellow position in History with a focus on German-Canadian migration or Canadian-German relations
Applicants may have completed doctoral research on any aspect of Canadian history, German history, or any other national history, or transnational history with any focus such as gender, class, race, environment, economics, law, empire, etc. Applicants are expected to develop a self-generated program of research that explores a German-Canadian aspect of their doctoral work. Alternatively, applicants way wish to begin a new research project that focuses on the German-Canadian perspective of a broader issue (refugee history, business history, international relations, etc.). Previous research in German-Canadian Studies is not a requirement. The Postdoctoral Fellow position in History with a focus on German-Canadian migration or Canadian-German relations is made possible by a generous donation from the Spletzer Family Foundation.
The Postdoctoral Fellow position is open to scholars at an early stage of their academic careers (within ten years of completing their Ph.D.). The position is open to international applicants.
Application deadline: 30 March 2019.
Position Start: 1 July 2019 or 1 August 2019.
