The Faculty of Law is inviting outstanding applications it could support for a Banting postdoctoral fellowship.

Please note that the Faculty of Law has an internal deadline for this competition. Applicants must submit a copy of their application to  Carla Serpe by August 7th, 2018 at noon. Applications submitted after this deadline will not be considered.

The Banting programme offers a prestigious fellowship of CAN$ 70 000 per year for a duration of two years. Launched by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) in 2011, the programme insists on the synergy between the applicant’s “individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career” as well as on the host institution’s “commitment to the research program and alignment with the institution's strategic priorities.”

The Banting postdoctoral fellowship is open to all Canadian and international candidates who have completed their doctorate between September 15th 2015 and September 30th 2019. Those interested in applying should review in detail the relevant sections in the Application Guide to ensure that their application fully addresses each of the selection criteria.

Please note that the faculty of law does not have access to the online ResearchNet application system. Therefore, in addition to sending a copy of their applications, applicants should also instruct their referees to send a confidential copy of their completed forms to Ms. Serpe once they have uploaded it on ResearchNet but no later than August 15, 2018.

Applicants are encouraged to contact full-time professors at the Faculty of Law to seek support for their applications well before the Law School’s internal deadline. If a faculty member agrees to serve as a supervisor, they will be required to provide the "supervisor’s statement" by August 15th, 2018. If a supervisor has not been secured by the August 8th deadline, the applicant should submit the application indicating the name of potential supervisor(s) and justifying their choice in the application materials. 

For more information, please see the School of Graduate Studies website, or contact Carla Serpe.
