The Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University has a postdoctoral fellowship program in “Democracy and Diversity”, funded by the Canadian Institute For Advanced Research. Each year, one non-renewable 12-month fellowship is awarded. The successful applicant will have a demonstrated expertise in political philosophy/political theory, with a special interest in issues of the accommodation of diversity in democratic societies, show evidence of teaching potential, and be able to participate constructively in departmental and collegial activities. The Fellow will work under the supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka.

The 2010-11 fellowship will start on July 1, 2009.

Applicants must have submitted their doctoral dissertation by that date, and must be within five years of having received their doctorate. The salary for the postdoctoral fellowship will be $34,000, which includes remuneration for teaching a half-course in political philosophy or a cognate subject. Queen’s University is a leading centre for the normative study of democracy and diversity, with active research programs located in both the Ethnicity and Democratic Governance project (EDG) and the Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy. The Fellow would be affiliated with these programs, and would participate in their activities.
