Job Posting: One-Year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Affect Studies

October 17, 2014

The Affect Project at the University of Manitoba is inviting applications for their one year postdoctoral fellowship beginning January 1, 2015.  The Affect Project (Memory, Aesthetics, and Ethics) is a collaboration of researchers (any discipline is welcome to apply) that is interested in how understanding affects understandings of cultural environments and lived experiences.  The goal of the Affect Project is to produce both knowledge and comprehension based upon the diverse perspectives from academic and community partners to ultimately understand how the power of affect influences the realms of politics, policy, justice, and art. 

Candidates must have received their Ph.D. no earlier than September 1, 2012 and no later than December 31, 2014.  The candidate is expected to reside in Winnipeg for the duration of the award.  The applicant should be pursuing their own research on a project that should relate to affect studies and ultimately make the fellow an active contributor in academic and intellectual activities regarding the Affect Project, including a conference in September 2015.  The successful candidate will be provided with a stipend of $60,000. 

The application process for this fellowship entails: a CV/Resume; a statement of research project (1000 to 3000 words); one chapter or article-length writing sample (must be less than 40 pages); and three letters of recommendation.  

Please send all application materials electronically to:

Professor Arlene Young

Department of English, Film, and Theatre


Application deadline is November 15, 2014.
