The Opportunity

A Postdoctoral Fellowship in the field of Ukrainian Studies is made available in fulfilment of one of the conditions of a major gift by Mr Victor Rudewych and Ms Maria Rudewych. The value of the benefaction, whose purpose is to support Ukrainian Studies at Monash University, is $1.52 million. 

The Monash Rudewych Postdoctoral Fellow in Ukrainian Studies will conduct excellent research that leads to peer-reviewed publications. The research project proposed and undertaken by the fellow will fall within Ukrainian literary and cultural studies, one of the research fields represented in Monash University's School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics, or within related humanities or social sciences disciplines. 

Applications that propose comparative and/or interdisciplinary approaches to the study of Ukrainian subject matter will be welcome, as will proposals for projects that will benefit from interaction with other researchers at Monash University.  

Applicants may propose to build upon, and bring to publication, research undertaken for their doctorates, or to embark upon new research projects. The Monash Rudewych Postdoctoral Fellow in Ukrainian Studies will work closely with the director of the Mykola Zerov Centre for Ukrainian Studies.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
