Job Details

Princeton University

The Fund for Canadian Studies at Princeton University seeks to appoint a distinguished visitor whose work promotes interactions, collaboration, and educational opportunities between students and scholars at Princeton and in Canada on subjects centering on Canada and/or the northern circumpolar regions. Applications from any academic discipline are invited, including but not limited to interdisciplinary fields such as environmental studies, indigenous studies, film studies, and migration studies. Applications are also invited from highly distinguished artists, performers, writers, and journalists. This appointment is for the 2020-2021 academic year. The length of appointment is flexible, but typically either a single semester or complete academic year. The appointment will be made through the Humanities Council. As a member of a host department or program, the visiting scholar is expected to interact directly with a wide cross-section of Princeton students, research scholars, and faculty. In addition, in at least one semester during this appointment, they must teach an undergraduate course in their host department with Canadian content. The course will be offered under the auspices of the department or program at Princeton that most closely corresponds to the recipient's academic discipline, subject to the approval of the host department and the Dean of the Faculty, and subject to sufficient enrollments. Applicants must have an advanced degree; Ph.D. is preferred. Preference will be given to applicants employed at a Canadian University. The strongest candidates will already lead dynamic and interactive research programs at their home institutions. In exceptional cases, we consider applications from independent scholars. The salary provided, and any secondary teaching rank, will depend upon the recipient's rank, salary, and sabbatical compensation at the home university. Applicants must apply online: Please submit current curriculum vitae, a cover letter, research statement, teaching statement, and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin on December 31, 2019. This advertisement and supplementary information about the Program is available at the Princeton University's Canadian Studies web site: Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
