Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada hosts a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Animal Studies, associated with the APPLE program. This is a one-year non-renewable 12-month fellowship, supporting a researcher with demonstrated expertise in animal ethics, law and public policy. While we interpret animal ethics, law and public policy broadly, and welcome applications from various disciplines that study human-animal relations including political science, law, philosophy, sociology and environmental studies, we are particularly interested in research that critically examines the moral, legal and political dimensions of how human-animal relations are governed. The recipient of the Fellowship is expected to reside in Kingston, to teach a University course in animal studies, and to collaborate in developing initiatives related to the promotion of the analysis and understanding of animal rights (such as workshops, conferences, public lectures, etc.). The Fellow will work under the supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka.

Previous postdoctoral fellows were Charlotte Blattner (2017-18), Josh Milburn (2016-17), Angie Pepper (2015-16), and Zipporah Weisberg (2013-15).

Will Kymlicka will be on sabbatical in 2018-19, and so the postdoctoral fellowship in animal studies will not be offered for that year. Please stay tuned for future developments.
