Gordon F. Henderson Post doctoral Fellow

The Gordon F. Henderson Post-Doctoral Scholarship is offered to a researcher with a promising and innovative research project which falls within mandate of the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) and who will benefit from developing that project at the HRREC. Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the proposed research project will be given preference.

Eligible candidates would have obtained a doctoral degree no more than five years prior to the year of the nomination. Fellows agree to contribute to the development and scholarly activities of the HRREC by engaging in an original research program which is distinct from the research he or she has previously undertaken. The scholarship competition is open to both Canadian citizens and non-citizens.

The next competition will be held in 2021. More details on the application process will be available later on.
