As part of its general scholarships program for the 2015-2014 year,
the OICRM is offering one (1) Postdoctoral fellowship scholarship in
musicology, ethnomusicology, composition, instrumental didactics, or
musical pedagogy for students who will be completing their fellowship
under the supervision of a regular member of the OICRM. At Université
de Montréal and at Université Laval, instruction is given in French;
it is therefore important that students demonstrate a good knowledge
of French (spoken and read). The fellowship must start between
September 1st, 2015 and January 1st, 2016. Candidates must have
received their doctorate during the last five years (i.e. after
September 1st, 2010).
The scholarship has a value of $22,000 per year, for a maximum
duration of 24 months (2 years). This summ will include taxes
depending on the university with which the Postdoctoral fellow is
For candidates with Canadian citizenship (or permanent resident
status), the Postdoctoral scholarship is granted insofar as the
candidate agrees to apply for a scholarship from the FQRSC and the
SSHRC for the second year of his or her fellowship. The OICRM
Postdoctoral scholarship may be combined with other scholarships or
research contracts with the exception of FQRSC and SSHRC
excellence-based grants, up to a maximum amount of $45,000.
For foreign candidates, the Postdoctoral scholarship may be combined
with other scholarships or research contracts up to a maximum amount
Students who have obtained a doctoral degree from Université de
Montréal cannot apply for the fellowship at Université de Montréal in
the same discipline, just as students who have obtained a doctoral
degree from Université Laval cannot apply for the fellowship at
Université Laval in the same discipline.
The OICRM Postdoctoral scholarship is intended to support the career
development of a researcher who has recently obtained a doctoral
degree. Candidates must show, through their project, that they are
undertaking new research, are publishing or will publish the results
of their research, are creating or extending their network of
research-based resource people, will enrich their teaching experience,
and will contribute to furthering and broadening the field of research
of the researcher, research team, or host lab. Selected projects will
be those that meet a maximum of the set goals.
Proposed projects must be defined in terms of the OICRM's lines of
research (Doing, Learning, Understanding), and must integrate with a
research or research-creation project carried out by a regular member
of the OICRM.
Candidates do not need to be members of the OICRM at the time of application.
Applications must include:
* A duly completed application form (available at
www.oicrm.org and at the OICRM office, A-769)
* A letter of motivation
* Three letters of reference, including one from the
director of research providing details of the supervision conditions
of the fellowship, as well as the financial support offered to the
candidate (form available at www.oicrm.org)
* A recent transcript from the last program of study
* A digital copy of the doctoral thesis.
Candidates must at the same time also submit an application for
