The Rebuilding First Nations Governance (RFNG) project is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to join our work with First Nations who are shedding Indian Act governance and becoming self-determining.

RFNG is supported by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council through a Partnership Grant, as well as in-kind and financial support from First Nation and non-governmental organization partners. A key partner is the Centre for First Nations Governance. More information about the project and our partners is available at

This is an exceptional opportunity to play an important role in ground-breaking, nationally important research that is led by and supports First Nations as they reclaim their own laws and engage their people in setting and implementing priorities for self-government. The work is interdisciplinary, touching on Aboriginal law, various aspects of public policy, and public administration. As the project’s first post-doctoral fellow, you will be working with First Nation communities across Canada, as well as a network of Indigenous and non-Indigenous practitioners and academics. We have a strong crew of mainly Indigenous graduate research assistants, and an ambitious knowledge mobilization and publication program.
