For the last 10 years, the Institut des hautes études de l’Amérique latine (IHEAL) gives some of his university chairs to researchers specialized in social sciences on the Latin American area. Created thanks to the Secretary of Higher Education and Researcg of France; these chairs are destined to help in the collaboration between Europe and Latin America; allowing the IHEAL to create links with many latinamerican universities and consolidate a vast academic network.



  • At the time of application submission, the candidate must be under 65-years-old, hold a Ph.D. degreeand be a teacher at the University level or a researcher at a foreign research organization.
  • The IHEAL encourages candidates to apply for semester-long stays (4 months from September to December or from January to May). This is to allow the invited scholar to immerse him or herself into the academic life of the University.
  • Invited scholars are asked to teach two classes per semester, each one consisting of 24 to 26 hours each depending on the semester. 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.
  • The IHEAL receives applications in all fields of Social Science. For the academic year 2017-2018, classes in Geography, Economy and Anthropology are highly preferred, as well as candidates working on Central America, the Caribbean and the Andean countries.
