2016-18 Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Global Governance

McgillInstitute for the Study of International Development, McGill University

Two Postdoctoral Fellowships in Global Governance will be awarded for a two-year period starting in September 2015. Each Fellowship includes a yearly stipend of $55,000 CAD and a yearly research allowance of $10,000 CAD.

Postdoctoral Fellows in Global Governance will be selected based on the demonstrated ways that their proposed research can contribute to developing better policies for global governance, as well as the fit between their proposed research and academic resources at McGill. Global governance is considered to include the formal and informal rules and practices designed to promote sustainable, inclusive development and democratic governance.  While such rules and practices would typically be applicable at the supranational and transnational levels, they also include local or national examples that demonstrate the potential for wider application.
