Depuis plus de dix ans, l’Institut des hautes études de l'Amérique latine (IHEAL) attribue chaque année des chaires à des enseignants et chercheurs étrangers travaillant sur l’Amérique latine dans le domaine des sciences humaines et sociales. Mises en place grâce au ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche français, ces chaires s’inscrivent dans le cadre de la politique française de coopération scientifique avec cette région du monde. Elles permettent à l’IHEAL de tisser des liens avec de nombreuses universités latino-américaines et de consolider un large réseau scientifique.



At the time of application submission, the candidate must be under 65-years-old, hold a Ph.D. degree and be a teacher at the University level or a researcher at a foreign research organization.

The invitation is valid for semester-long stay (4 months from September to December or from January to April).

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 2018-2019, classes in Geography, Economy and Anthropology are highly preferred, as well as candidates working on Central America, the Caribbean and the Andean countries.

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.

Classes can be taught in French, Spanish, English or Portuguese.
