CGHI Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of Toronto

It is my pleasure to announce a new postdoctoral fellowship program, sponsored by the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) at the University of Toronto. I hope you will share with your students, colleagues, and networks.

CDHI Postdoctoral Fellowship in Community Data (2022-24)

Created in collaboration with the iSchool, UTSC, and the Council on Library & Information Resources (CLIR), the CDHI Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Community Data will support two interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellows for two academic years, 2022-24. One fellow will be affiliated with the University of Toronto Faculty of Information (iSchool). One fellow will be affiliated with University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC). We hope you will help us spread the word about this exciting new opportunity among your networks.

In the context of this fellowship program, we define community data broadly to include projects that enact equitable, future-focused strategies of preserving data related to the histories of people of colour, Indigenous peoples, and queer, disabled, or other communities whose work, experiences, and perspectives have been insufficiently recognized or inequitably attended to in historical records.

The fellowships are full-time, two-year positions. Fellows will receive a salary of $70,000/year, which includes teaching one undergraduate half course (0.5 FCE) for the iSchool or UTSC in each of the two years. Applications are open now and close on 01 March 2022.

We are thrilled to continue building the network of critical and creative digital humanities research at U of T. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the CDHI Managing Director, Dr. Danielle Taschereau Mamers (, with any enquiries.
