McGill University, Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, Visiting Professor
Oct 28, 2014 → Dec 12, 2014
The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) at McGill University in Montreal invites applications for the position of Visiting Professor. These non-salaried positions are open to professors who wish to spend one or two academic terms in a university environment in order to carry out research on gender, sexuality or feminist studies. The Visiting Professor positions are ideal for faculty with research leave funding, a portable research fellowship, or sabbatical. The Institute offers work space and support, an ongoing seminar program, contact with other professors within McGill and in neighbouring universities - all this located at the centre of a stimulating, bilingual, urban environment.
Research funding in the amounts of $1,000 and $5,000 (for the Muriel Gold Senior Visiting Professor position) is available. Preference will be given to professors who already hold faculty positions.
If interested, please send a proposal that describes in 1-2 pages the research that would be undertaken while in residence as a Visiting Professor, a copy of a recent publication, an up-to-date curriculum vitae and an indication of what period you would like for your tenure as IGSF Visiting Professor to:
Carrie Rentschler, Director
Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF)
3487 Peel Street, 2nd floor
Montreal, QC H3A 1W7
While we may be able to provide administrative advice on the following matters, we ask that IGSF visiting professors 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. All visiting professors must ensure that they have health insurance to cover any medical costs for the duration of your visit to Canada.
Application closing date: Monday, 8 December, 2014
Please submit your application and all documents electronically to McGill.
