The Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship during the 2020-21 academic year to support junior scholars pursuing research in LGBTQ2+ and sexual diversity 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. The Postdoctoral Fellow will offer one undergraduate class for the Sexual Diversity Studies program and, at some point during the period of their award, deliver at least one public lecture that highlights their work. They will be able to utilize the vast faculty resources, manuscript 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 $58,000, plus benefits, to support themselves for the duration of their fellowship.
