Environmental Justice Research Fellowship 2017-2018

Pursuant to a five year SSHRC Insight Grant and the Faculty of Law’s own internal bursary program, Professors Nathalie Chalifour, Heather McLeod-Kilmurray and Sophie Thériault are recruiting a Research Fellow to complete graduate research on environmental justice in Canadian Law and Policy. The Research Fellow will be a full-time student enrolled in the University of Ottawa LLM (thesis) or Doctoral program.  She or he will participate in research projects and pursue graduate research in one or more of these areas under the supervision of one of the project leaders, in partial completion of an LLM or a Doctorate at the University of Ottawa. 

The candidate will conduct research on one of the project’s case studies. The case studies examine the way in which legal structures contribute to environmental injustices and the role of law in remedying these injustices. Specifically, candidates who are interested in conducting research on Climate Justice and Biodiversity and Indigenous Peoples in the North are sought. More information is available HERE
