Senior Visiting Professorship

The Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI) at Vanderbilt University’s Department of Political Science seeks applicants for up to three (3) Senior Visiting Professors who seek to conduct research on political institutions, opinion or behavior. Applications are welcome from scholars of all ranks or equivalent professional positions.  The specific length of the appointment will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis, but we especially welcome applications from scholars who are interested in spending an entire year at Vanderbilt. There is no teaching requirement associated with the fellowship, but teaching can be arranged if desired by the successful candidate. Successful candidates will be provided financial support (e.g. half salary to make a full year’s leave possible), office space, and computing resources.
 
Candidates should submit a vita and a cover letter describing your research project, what you hope to accomplish while at CSDI, and why spending time at Vanderbilt would provide a useful setting for that research. The letter should also indicate how long the desired time in residence would be and whether there are existing financial arrangements that would be relevant (e.g., if you have a paid semester and health care benefits). Applicants should send all materials to: CSDI Senior Visiting Professor Search, Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, Vanderbilt University, PMB 0505, 230 Appleton Place, Nashville, TN 37203.  Vanderbilt is an AA/EO employer. We particularly encourage applications from minorities and women. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those received before February 1, 2015.
