Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowships for Black and Indigenous Scholars, York University, York, UK. Deadline: 1 March 2023.
York University is pleased to announce the third cycle of the Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowships for Black and Indigenous scholars. This program was created to address under-representation of Black and Indigenous scholars in many disciplines and fields of research and associated careers. While gaining a foothold to begin a career can be difficult in itself, too often Black and Indigenous scholars face the additional challenges of racism and systems structured implicitly or explicitly to protect others’ privilege. Supportive mentorship and network-building can be lacking or actively denied. The Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowships for Black and Indigenous Scholars begin to address this problem by providing collegial resources, supervision, mentorship, and funded time to successful applicants to seek their chosen careers.
NOTE: They also have Assistant Professor positions available in Black Politics and Black Politics in Canada.
