Martha LA McCain Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies

Applications are currently closed.

The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship during the 2022-23 academic year, with the possibility of an additional one-year renewal, to support emerging scholars pursuing research in queer, trans, and LGBTIQ2SA+ studies. Our search committee welcomes proposals that span disciplinary boundaries. Applicants from all fields of the humanities and the social sciences are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant is expected to be in residence in the Greater Toronto Area during the period of their award and will join the faculty and students who make up our intellectual community and participate in the Centre’s day-to-day activities. They will receive a dedicated office space at University College and be an active member of the Queer and Trans Research Lab (QTRL) 2022-23 cohort, a collaborative research project based at The Bonham Centre with a focus on methods in queer and trans studies across the disciplines as well as across creative and activist research practices.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will offer one undergraduate class for the Sexual Diversity Studies undergraduate program and, at some point during the period of their award, deliver at least one public lecture that highlights their work. Fellows will have access to the vast faculty resources, archives, and library collections available at the University of Toronto, the Bonham Centre, and in the city. The successful candidate will receive a combined research and teaching stipend of $60,000, plus benefits, to support themselves for the duration of their fellowship. To get a sense of the wide disciplinary range and diversity of the Bonham Centre’s community, the Queer and Trans Research Lab, and our academic offerings consult our website.

Our current Postdoctoral Fellow is Elif Sari.
