The Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Animal Studies. This is a one-year non-renewable 12-month fellowship, supporting a researcher with demonstrated expertise in animal ethics, law and public policy. While we interpret animal ethics, law and public policy broadly, and welcome applications from various disciplines that study human-animal relations including political science, law, philosophy, sociology, geography, and environmental studies, we are particularly interested in research that critically examines the moral, legal and political dimensions of how human-animal relations are governed. The recipient of the Fellowship is expected to be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the Department, to teach a University course in animal ethics, to participate in the activities of our animal studies research group (http://animalpolitics.queensu.ca/), and to help organize a workshop or conference in the field. The Fellow will work under the supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka. The 2019-20 fellowship will start on July 1, 2019. Applicants must have submitted their doctoral dissertation by that date, and must be within five years of having received their doctorate. The salary for the postdoctoral fellowship will be $40,000, which includes remuneration for teaching a half-course in animal ethics or a cognate subject. Applications are due by February 1.
