Call for Applications, Faculty Supervisors, Scholars-in-Residence 2018

The Jackman Humanities Institute is pleased to call for proposals for

Faculty Supervisors, Scholars-in-Residence 2018

The JHI provides research support for UofT faculty (research and teaching streams) working in the humanities and interpretive social sciences. Participating faculty members select teams of five exceptional upper-year undergraduate researchers from a variety of academic disciplines and backgrounds. Students will spend the month of May 2018 living in residence, working on faculty research projects and participating in extra-curricular activities. Faculty members who participate for the first time are awarded $7,500 to support the time commitment involved in planning research projects and training undergraduate researchers. In addition to 20 hours per week of RA work (per student), faculty are encouraged to share their experiences and strategies with colleagues, and are provided with a knowledge base for building UR into SSHRC and other external grant proposals.

Deadline for Applications: 22 November 2017
