University of Toronto CrimSL Research Cluster for the Study of Racism and Inequality 2023-24 Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity
The legacies of racism and colonialism, and various manifestations of structural inequality, continue to shape this present moment. From the recent identification of hundreds of unmarked graves in Canadian residential schools for Indigenous people, to the rising police violence that led to the killing of George Floyd and the expansion of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) social movement, to the increasing incarceration rates and health disparities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and the rising violence against transgender people, these issues and more continue to directly impact BIPOC peoples’ access to education, employment, financial resources, and other forms of support, as well as various networking and community building opportunities. These issues also shape scholarly research and other forms of knowledge production, and are manifest in various settings, including at our institutions of formal learning. The Research Cluster for the Study of Racism and Social Inequality (The Cluster) is looking for a postdoctoral fellow for 2023-2024 whose research supports original/cutting-edge research related to cluster themes listed below.
The postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is connected to theme-related programming fostered by the Research Cluster and calls on applicants to propose one or more areas of engagement as the basis for the yearlong postdoctoral fellowship. More information can be found in the file attached below
