IGSF Visiting Scholar positions McGill University

2014-2015 VISITING SCHOLAR POSITIONS, McGill University (Montreal)

The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) invites applications for the competitive position of Visiting Scholar. These 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 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 sabbatical. Preference will be given to scholars who already hold faculty positions. Research funding in the amounts of $1,000 and $5,000 (for the Muriel Gold Senior Visiting Scholar position) is available from IGSF. We do not cover/pay salaries.

If interested, please send a proposal that describes in 1-2 pages the research that would be undertaken while in residence as a Visiting Scholar, a copy of a recent publication, an up-to-date curriculum vitae and an indication of what period you would be interested in being in residence as an IGSF Visiting Scholar to (email applications preferred):

Please note in particular that Canada does not pay for hospital or medical services for visitors. All visiting scholars must ensure they have health insurance to cover any medical costs for the duration of a visit to Canada.

APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: Monday, 9 December, 2013

Candidates requiring assurance of a position in order to obtain funding elsewhere are invited to apply one year in advance.
