FELLOWSHIPS FOR VISITING SCHOLARS, UNITED STATES STUDIES CENTRE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY
The United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney invites applicants for Visiting Scholar Fellowships for 2013-14 (June 1 2013-May 31 2014). A small number of stipends of $20,000-$40,000 (AUD) will be available for academics taking leaves from their home institutions and wishing to spend 1-12 months at the US Studies Centre; the funds are meant to supplement sabbatical or other salary. The deadline for applications is 5 April for visits to begin as early as June 2013.
Our criteria for selection include demonstrated evidence of first-rate scholarship on any aspect of American or U.S. studies; potential synergies with academic staff affiliated with the Centre; and willingness to interact with larger Australian academic community. We expect that Scholars will use the stipend to make progress on a serious writing project for which US Studies Centre will be credited for support and will, while in residence, make a formal presentation of the research. In addition to an office, use of a computer, and a library, the particular terms of the offer will be negotiated individually depending on duration of the visit and seniority of the candidate.
To apply, please send the following materials electronically to Amelia Trial firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 April 2013:
1) 3-4 page double-space proposed plan of work
3) A list of 3 references
4) Budget for period proposed
Successful applicants will be notified by the beginning of May.
We hope to open the competition for 2014-15 in approximately six months to give individuals sufficient time to plan. Please alert us if you intend to apply.
