Opportunity for Post-Doctoral Fellowship
The McGill Institute for Health and Social Policy is offering a postdoctoral fellowship for the 2019 calendar year (Jan. 1, 2019-Dec 31 2019). The holder of this fellowship will play a key role in IHSP’s Laboratory of Urban Culture. The LUC is both a physical space and a series of programs operating out of the Salon 1861 in Montreal’s vibrant Little Burgundy neighborhood.
The fellow will form part of the Salon management team, and work to help us further develop LUC’s community ties, existing programing, and new programing. The fellow will also research the Salon ecosystem, with a focus on developing appropriate and testable success indicators for the sort of programming undertaken. In addition, the research will concern the ways in which cultural programming can contribute to community health. The fellow is also encouraged to conduct independent research on a related topic of their interest and will have dedicated time to undertake this research.
The fellow must be fluently bilingual (activities at the Salon are conducted primarily in French), and able to interact effectively with other community agents and players.
