Dear all:

Scholars from Mexico, Brazil, China and India are eligible for three kinds of fellowships to Quebec universities (see description and website below).  Among these fellowships is a one-year post-doc for recent PhDs.  Please note: this fellowship aims to attract people from these four countries, but there is no requirement that applicants have completed their PhDs in their country of origin.  
 
To be eligible applicants must identify a faculty sponsor at one of the Quebec universities to write a letter of reference.  As a member of the Department of Geography Planning and Environment at Concordia University in Montreal, I would like to sponsor a scholar to compete for one of these post-docs.  
 
I am a human geographer and my research interests include neoliberalism, development, biopolitics/governmentality.  (See website for more information <http://gpe.concordia.ca/about/facultystaff/kgould.php>.)  Please contact me if you share some of my research interests, and you would like to apply for a post-doc.  Also, please note that the deadline for submitting all application materials is July 31, 2009.  

Best,
Kevin Gould
***************************************************************************

Below are the main criteria for the fellowship.  Below that is the
official description and website.
