We are interested in applications from faculty in all disciplines whose work focuses on ethics and/or leadership, but for the 2021-22 appointment we are especially interested
in individuals whose research focuses on issues of racial and/or gender justice, medical ethics, environmental ethics, or other timely policy-related issues.

The Distinguished Visiting Professor will be expected to devote most of their time to their own research and writing.
