The Faculty of Arts at the University of New Brunswick is accepting applications for twelve-month post-doctoral fellowship beginning 1 July 2017.  This postdoc is in conjunction with a SSHRC-funded Partnership Development Grant on “Unrest, Violence and the Search for Social Order in British North America and Canada, 1749-1878” and the Canada Research Chair in Atlantic Canada Studies. 

The fellow’s primary responsibilities will be two-fold:  1) work on a research project that is relevant to the theme of unrest, violence, and social order in British North America, and 2) work with the co-partners on the grant – Elizabeth Mancke (UNB), Jerry Bannister (Dalhousie University), Scott See (University of Maine), and Denis McKim (Douglas College) to edit a volume of essays coming out of a workshop on this theme.

At UNB, the fellow will be affiliated with Elizabeth Mancke, CRC in Atlantic Canada Studies, the Atlantic Canada Studies Centre, and the Department of History.  The compensation is $40,500. Potential candidates must be within three years of receiving their PhD and must have their PhD completed by 1 June 2017.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that includes a statement of their research program, and arrange to have three letters of recommendations sent by 15 March 2017 to:
