Visiting Fellowships

International Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowships

We offer non-stipendiary International Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowships to international scholars working on cutting-edge urban-focused research projects.

The School provides unique scholarly opportunities for urban-focused interdisciplinary and collaborative learning, mentorship and research to excellent international scholars with a passion for cities and critical urban challenge research, motivated to pursue an innovative and impactful project, and are available to participate in the School of Cities program activities and contribute to the School of Cities community in unique ways.

The duration of the fellowship is flexible with a minimum residency of one month. Fellows are required to actively participate in the School of Cities activities and programs, interact with faculty and students, give a seminar and participate in colloquia to communicate the results of their research during their residency.

At the University of Toronto, each postdoctoral or visiting scholar needs a faculty host or mentor.
