Visiting Scholars

Persons with significant academic, literary, or artistic qualifications whose work may benefit from a residency at the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies are invited to apply for a non-stipendiary position as Visiting Scholar. The position provides SFU affiliation, use of SFU library resources, Internet access, and shared office space.

Visiting scholars are expected to be in residence for at least one semester and no longer than one year.  They will participate in the SFU academic community and, where relevant, in wider community activities by attending lectures, workshops, and colloquia as well as making at least one public presentation in relation to original research.

If interested, please submit electronically a letter of application, a current CV, and a two-page research proposal, including the desired dates of tenure, to gswschr@sfu.ca.  Applications will be reviewed twice a year, in October and April.  A letter of invitation will be extended to successful applicants.

Successful applicants from outside Canada will be expected to arrange their own travel and immigration documents.
