Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Arts Amplifier does not run a fellowship program — but we will support your postdoctoral fellowship application if you are a current UBC Arts PhD student or postdoctoral fellow and you’re applying to do a community- or workplace-based postdoc.


The two-year Mitacs Elevate program includes a research management training program and a postdoctoral fellowship.

Mitacs’ one-year Canadian Science Policy Fellowship offers PhD holders from all disciplines a 12-month immersion into the policy making process with participating government departments.

Mitacs is open to Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and international applicants.

American Council of Learned Societies:

The Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program places recent PhDs from the humanities and related social sciences in two-year staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector. Fellows participate in the substantive work of these organizations and receive professional mentoring. The fellowship provides a stipend of $70,000 per year as well as individual health insurance. To be eligible, you must be authorized to legally work in the United States.
