2013-2014 Distinguished Visiting Appointment
The Center for African American Studies at Princeton University invites nominations or self-nominations for faculty members from research universities or liberal arts colleges, and from independent scholars for a Visiting Appointment for the 2013-2014 academic year. This visiting appointment was established to enable the Center to invite one scholar each year whose research and teaching explicitly examine issues of race in innovative interdisciplinary ways. Candidates in any field may apply. The Visitor may be appointed for one semester or for the entire academic year and will, with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty, teach one undergraduate lecture course, and will participate in faculty-graduate seminars and other activities of the Center for African American Studies. The Distinguished Visitor will receive a salary of up to one-half of his or her academic year salary (not to exceed a maximum salary set each fall) for the appointment period, which extends from September 1 to July 1; independent scholars with no sabbatical support will receive a salary not to exceed the maximum set each fall. Letters of nomination or self-nomination should briefly cite evidence of the quality of the candidate’s scholarship and teaching. Please include a curriculum vita, the names and addresses of three referees, and syllabi of two undergraduate lecture courses.
The application period for academic year 2013–2014 is now closed. Please check back in August 2013 for information regarding academic year 2014 - 2015.
