The Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) is pleased to announce a new visiting fellowship in Israel studies. This unique position will appoint an Israel-based scholar to serve as a recurrent visiting fellow at FSI, Stanford, for a period of three years. The visiting fellow will spend at least one academic quarter (Autumn, Winter or Spring) at Stanford University in each of the next three academic years (2022-23, '23-'24, and '24-'25). Should the visiting fellow be available for a longer visit, the program could support up to a year-long visit during one of these three years, ideally in the first year, and it might be able to support a longer visit in other years. The visiting fellow will be asked to teach at least one course during the quarter of the visit (or at least two during an academic year) on some aspect of Israel’s politics, society, economy, modern history, technological development, and/or regional or international relations.
Quarter-long visitors will be expected to be present on campus full-time (save for possible short trips) over the course of the quarter. The position is open to applicants in all social science disciplines as well as history and other fields bearing on public policy. Applicants are expected to have outstanding records of scholarship and teaching, and tenured faculty from Israeli universities (with the equivalent rank of Associate Professor or higher) are strongly preferred.
In addition to teaching, the position also requires:
Applicants should submit by November 15, 2021, a current c.v., at least one syllabus or description of a course they might teach, and a letter describing their research, teaching, and interest in the program. Applications and inquiries should be emailed to Patrick Laboon at email@example.com.
