PhD Research Fellowship in Gender Mainstreaming
The Department of Political Science at Concordia University in Montreal, QC is offering two PhD Fellowships in Gender Mainstreaming with a minimum value of $69,000 (at least $23,000 per year for three years) to commence in September, 2017. The doctoral research fellows will assist with the project The Politics of ‘Doing’: Gender-Based Analysis and Policy Work in Canada, led by Drs. Stephanie Paterson and Francesca Scala.
Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), this project investigates the ways that feminist knowledges mediate bureaucratic practices in Canada, with specific focus on gender-based analysis at both federal and provincial levels. Applicants should have a broad research interest in feminist policy studies, with a specific focus on equality policy architectures and/or gender-based policy analysis.
The doctoral research fellows will play an important role in the research project and have the opportunity to co-author with members of the project team and present at conferences, while also conducting their own independent research. Additional funding for conference travel may be available throughout the course of the project.
The funding breakdown is as follows:
- Research assistance: $30,000 ($10,000 per year for 3 years);
- Teaching assistance: minimum of $18,000 (at least $6,000 per year for 3 years);
- Faculty of Arts and Science Mentor Award: $21,000 ($7,000 per year for 3 years);
- Students from outside of Canada will receive a tuition remission in the form of an International Tuition Award of Excellence (valued at approximately $35,000);
- Applicants will automatically be considered for additional internal fellowships.
Interested applicants should send a one-page statement outlining research interests and relevant experience along with a copy of their CV to Dr. Stephanie Paterson (Stephanie.firstname.lastname@example.org) before January 15, 2017. Students must also mention their interest in this Fellowship in their application to Concordia University’s doctoral program in Political Science.
