IGSF Visiting Scholars, McGill University in Montreal
2013-2014 VISITING SCHOLAR POSITIONS
The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) invites applications for the position of Visiting Scholar. These positions are open to any scholar who wishes to spend one or two academic terms in a university environment in order to carry out research on gender, sexuality or feminist studies. The Institute offers work space and support, an ongoing seminar program, contact with other scholars within McGill and in neighbouring universities - all this located at the centre of a stimulating, bilingual, urban environment.
The Visiting Scholar positions are ideal for faculty with research leave funding, a portable research fellowship, or paid sabbatical. Preference will be given to scholars who already hold faculty positions. Research funding for supplementing scholar's own research monies in the amounts of $1,000 and $5,000 (for the Muriel Gold Senior Visiting Scholar position) is available from the IGSF.
If interested, please send a proposal that describes in 2-3 pages the research that would be undertaken while in residence as a Visiting Scholar, copies of two recent publications, an up-to-date curriculum vitae and the names and contact information of two references, electronically, to IGSF
While we may be able to provide administrative advice on the following matters, we ask that IGSF visiting scholars assume full responsibility on matters relating to visa applications, health insurance, housing and living expenses. Please note in particular that Canada does not pay for hospital or medical services for visitors. We ask all visiting scholars to ensure to have health insurance to cover any medical costs for the duration of your visit to Canada.
APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: Wednesday, 21 November, 2012
Candidates requiring assurance of a position in order to obtain funding elsewhere are invited to apply one year in advance.
