William Lyon Mackenzie King Research Fellowship

The Canada Program at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs is inviting applications for the William Lyon Mackenzie King Research Fellowship. One fellow will be appointed for the 2011 2012 academic year during which he or she will be expected to teach one course each semester-conditional on the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the WCFIA Executive Committee, and the co-hosting academic department-and to participate in Canada Program-related events on campus.

This fellowship is open to scholars in all disciplines who are engaged in U.S.-Canada comparative research, with preference given to the fields of social sciences and the humanities. A strong doctoral record is required.

The stipend is approximately $90,000 for the year. The fellow will be eligible for shared office space and will enjoy full access to the University's library, archival, and computing resources.

Candidates should submit: a letter of application describing their suitability for the fellowship; a curriculum vitae with a list of publications; a sample of their written work; a teaching portfolio, containing a statement on teaching experience and syllabi; and three letters of recommendation.
