The department welcomes the contributions of visiting scholars to our academic and social life. Visiting scholars are established scholars with a PH.D wishing to collaborate with a particular LLED faculty member who has agreed to sponsor the scholar. Letters of sponsorship from LLED faculty members are required with applications.
We would like to work with visiting scholars who have research experience and also a publication record (with at least one publication in a major national or an international journal).
Although we receive many applications of interest, the department admits only up to 2 visiting scholars per academic year, normally for one of the fall, winter or summer semesters (3 months in length). A small number may also come for shorter periods as visiting lecturers or speakers.
Once applications are approved and processed, the department will provide network and library access, and opportunities to audit some classes on a not-for-credit basis. As part of the complete application, we require that you identify one person who is willing to host you and describe what you will contribute to our department. Please do not contact multiple faculty members.
Please send your cover letter and CV to the Assistant to the Head, Laurie Reynolds along with a statement of support from one of our faculty members. The Head and advisory committee will review all applications and we will notify successful applicants.
