Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, 
and Society, 2009-2010

The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at the
University of Toronto is accepting applications for the Petro Jacyk
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society for
the year 2008-2009.  The objective of the Post-Doctoral Fellowship is to
support on an annual basis one of the most promising junior scholars
studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby to advance academic
understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society.  The
Fellowship is made possible by generous support of the Petro Jacyk
Education Foundation.

* _Description_:  The Fellowship has both research and teaching
components.  The successful candidate will spend most of the Fellowship
period in residence at the University of Toronto, based at the Centre
for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (CERES).  While at CERES, the
Fellow will be expected to devote his/her 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.  These include guest lectures, workshops and conferences, and
other events.  In addition to research, he/she is expected to teach a
one semester course (seminar or lecture) that deals with contemporary
Ukraine (possibly from an interdisciplinary and/or comparative
perspective).  The Fellow will also be expected to spend a period of
time in Ukraine (normally 6-8 weeks and preferably, but not necessarily,
in May-June of the fellowship period) based at the National University
of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, where she/he may conduct research and
participate in the academic life of the institution.  By the end of
fellowship year, the Fellow is expected to have a publication (a book
manuscript based on a dissertation or an occasional paper from a new
research project) ready for submission and provide a report of his/her
activities to the Director of CERES.  The Fellow should acknowledge
Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in all publications, lectures, and
any other activities supported by the program;

* _Eligibility_: The Fellowship is open to junior scholars in the social
sciences and humanities with a teaching and research focus on
contemporary Ukraine.  The successful candidate must have completed
his/her PhD not more than three years prior to the start of the
fellowship period and before taking up the Fellowship.  There are no
restrictions with respect to citizenship.

* _Fellowship tenure_: The Centre will make one appointment for the
calendar year of twelve months beginning July 2009.

* _Funding_: The Fellowship holder will receive $40,000 Canadian funds
plus an allowance for research and travel expenses;
