The Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada offers a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Animal Studies. This is a two-year non-renewable 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, geography, 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 be actively involved in the day-to-day life of the University, to teach a University course in animal ethics each year, to participate in the activities of our animal studies research group (, and to help organize a workshop or conference in the field. The Fellow works under the supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka.

Previous postdoctoral fellows were Jishnu Guha-Majumdar. (2020-22), Julia Gibson (2019-20), Charlotte Blattner (2017-18), Josh Milburn (2016-17), Angie Pepper (2015-16), and Zipporah Weisberg (2013-15).
