Farley Distinguished Visiting Scholar in History, 2020-21

 The Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences at Simon Fraser University invites applications for the Farley Distinguished Visiting Scholar in History for the 2020-21 academic year. 

 

 

The Farley Distinguished Visiting Scholar is dedicated to the teaching of history, which is understood to include studies of the past, including the recent past, carried out within the departments and programs of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences. The Farley Distinguished Visiting Scholar is appointed as a Visiting Faculty Member for up to any two terms in an academic year. SFU operates year-round, with Fall, Winter, and Summer terms. Visiting Scholars are expected to have extensive interaction with faculty and students, and to help stimulate discussion across disciplines. They normally teach one course or lead other type of relevant intellectual activity that will be open to students across the university. It is also expected that Visiting Scholars engage in public outreach, which could consist of a public lecture or take some other form. The stipend for the Farley Distinguished Visiting Scholar is up to CAD 45,000 (commensurate with length of visit).

Applications should include a current CV and a cover letter outlining the following:

(1) a research plan for the tenure of the Visiting Scholar position;

(2) a brief description of an advanced undergraduate/graduate level course. (Please note that students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds will be able to register for the course.);

(3) a brief account of the public outreach activity, including topic to be addressed; and

(4) names of 3 referees.

In keeping with University policy, the successful candidate will hold an academic position at another university, or an equivalent position at another appropriate institution.

Review of applications will begin on June 5, 2019.

SFU is an equity employer and encourages applications from all qualified individuals including women, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of the university.
