Position opening for invited scholars fellowships





 At the time of application submission, the candidate must be under 65-years-old at the beginning of his contract with the IHEAL, hold a Ph.D. degree (obtained at least 5 years ago) and be a teacher at the University level or a researcher at a foreign research organization.

 The invitation is valid for a semester-long stay (4 months from September to December 2019 or from January to April 2020). This is to allow the invited scholar to immerse him or herself into the academic life of the University.

  Selected candidates will earn a monthly salary for the duration of the semester (4 months).

 Invited scholars are asked to teach two courses per semester, each one consisting of 24 hours. The course’s subject must be in line with the field of expertise of the invited scholar. The proposed courses might be modified according to the needs of IHEAL. Courses can be taught in French, Spanish or English.

■ The IHEAL receives applications in the following areas: History, Geography, Anthropology, Sociology, Economy and Political Science. For the academic year of 2019-2020, courses in Geography and Anthropology, or focused on Central America, the Caribbean and the Andean countries are highly preferred. Visiting scholars may be invited to teach within the IHEAL’s new Masters’ program LAGLOBE (Latin America and Europe in a Global World), which benefits from the European Union support.

Invited scholars can perform scientific and academic activities in the others Departments of the Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3 University, or any of the French and European Institutions with which the IHEAL collaborates upon requests.

In September 2019, the IHEAL will be joining the Campus Condorcet – ‘Cité des humanités et des sciences sociales’ located in northern Paris. All courses will take place on the new campus.
