The Zelikovitz Centre is strengthened by this growing network of research affiliates who come to us from various institutions and who are at various stages of their academic careers. Though External Affiliate positions are unpaid, the ZC provides for scholars the opportunity to share their work-in-progress, and where possible, offers support, for such research inviting scholars from off campus to present to the public and participate in Carleton courses. All Research Affiliates have full online and on-site access to Carleton University libraries. In exchange, incumbents are expected to participate in one conference or event over the course of their 3 year term. This initiative is part of the ZC’s larger mandate of building a dynamic group of national and international Jewish Studies scholars.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in becoming an active member of the Jewish Studies research community at the Zelikovitz Centre please encourage them to contact us. Interested candidates should email with a letter of introduction, CV, and short research statement, noting areas of interest as they pertain to Jewish Studies. Applications should contain subject line: ZC Research Associate.
