CIGI Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) is inviting postdoc fellows interested in global governance and policy-relevant research to consider the CIGI Campus in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, as a preferred location for their residency.


All fellows are required to secure funding from external fellowships (for example, Canada’s Social Sciences Humanities Research Council).

Research Themes

CIGI’s research programs focus on three themes:

  3. International law — all of these viewed through the lens of international governance.

Key Program Features

  1. CIGI postdoc fellows are expected to participate in the CIGI community,
  2. Seek opportunities to present their own research work, and disseminate their research results through a number of CIGI outlets.
  3. Consideration of applications will occur regularly throughout the year.
