The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at

supervisor and participate in activities of the Petro Jacyk Program
for the Study of Ukraine. These include guest lectures, workshops and

institution. By the end of fellowship year, the Fellow is expected to
have a publication (a book manuscript based on a dissertation or an

provide a report of his/her activities to the Director of CERES. The
Fellow should acknowledge Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in all
