Call for applications: Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the QRCPCL


The Quebec Research Centre of Private and Comparative Law (QRCPCL) intends to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with effect from August 2011.

The position is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

The position is funded by a Research Team Support Grant from the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (Quebec Fund for Research on Culture and Society). The team is led by Professor Lionel Smith, director of the QRCPCL, and composed of colleagues from McGill’s Faculty of Law and beyond.

The research agenda to which the position relates revolves around three axes:

  1. McGill’s transsystemic approach to legal education, and its impact on our understanding of law;
  2. The interactions between intellectual property law and private law, in Canada and beyond; and
  3. Trusts in Quebec civil law, and in civilian and mixed legal systems generally.
