Post-Doctoral & Senior Visiting Fellowships

2013-2014 Nathanson Centre Senior Visiting Fellowships Announcement

The Jack and Mae Nathanson Centre on Transnational Human Rights, Crime and Security, located at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, welcomes applications from visiting faculty and policy leaders whose work is significantly related to its mandate and who want to spend a term or a year at the Centre in 2013-2014.

The Nathanson Centre studies transnational phenomena and normative issues at the intersection of crime, security and human rights. It is the home of the journal Transnational Legal Theory. Since August 2011, the Centre has the benefit of new office space in the completely renovated, state-of-the-art Ignat Kaneff Building of Osgoode Hall Law School. It is eager to attract dynamic and interested researchers from around the world who are willing to partake in its activities and become part of the synergies that already exist between the Centre’s associates. The Centre will provide an office to each visiting fellow, as well as a work-related expense account of up to $4,000 (for a term)/$8,000 (for a year). It is expected that fellows will be generally present at the Centre, participate in its collegial activities, and present their ongoing work in the context of a seminar at some point during their stay. Up to four visiting fellowships will be awarded for 2013-2014.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter outlining their research, as well as cv, to Ms. Lielle Gonsalves. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. For any further queries, please contact the Centre’s Director, Professor François Tanguay-Renaud, at

Post-Doctoral Support

The Centre welcomes applications from post-doctoral fellows who wish to come to it with their own funding. From time to time, the Centre also sponsors SSHRC, Banting, and EU post-doctoral fellowships applications by doctorate holders interested in working at the Centre with its research associates, for a period of up to two years.
