Announcement

Requirements

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 2020 or 3 months from January to March 2021). This is to allow the invited scholar to immerse him or herself into the academic life of the University. Visiting scholars will receive a monthly salary which corresponds to a specific index for University professors in France. The IHEAL does not provide financial aid for travel or accomodation expenses.

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 2020-2021, the commission will pay special attention to courses in Sociology, Gender Studies or Urban Studies, or focused on Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico 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.
