Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society,
The Petro Jacyk Educational Foundation and the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at University of Toronto are accepting applications for the Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society for the year 2014-2015.

The Fellowship is made possible by 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 Fellowship period in residence at CERES and a period of time in Ukraine (typically 2-4 weeks), conducting research and giving lecture(s) at an educational institution. While at CERES, the Fellow is expected to devote her/his time to preparation of his/her dissertation for publication and/or to start a new research project. The Fellow will work closely with an appointed research supervisor and participate in activities of the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine. This will include guest lectures, workshops, and conferences. In addition to research, he/she is expected to teach a one semester course (usually a seminar) that deals with contemporary Ukraine.
The Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship is available to junior scholars in the social sciences and humanities with a research and teaching focus on contemporary Ukraine. The fellowship is open to recently awarded PhDs (persons holding doctorates for no more than three years at the time of application).
