2009 International Scholars
Academic Fellowship Program
Open Society Institute

The Academic Fellowship Program (AFP) announces the 2009-10
competition for the International Scholars Fellowship. The program
invites highly qualified scholars in the social sciences and
humanities to consult at carefully selected university departments in
the AFP region: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina,
Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Moldova,
Mongolia, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Tajikistan, and Ukraine.

Fellowships include a modest stipend, transportation, accommodation,
and various other allowances, begin in August or September 2009, last
one academic year, and are renewable. Those selected for the
fellowship, or "International Scholars," offer advice on the overall
reform agenda of AFP partner departments and share with departmental
colleagues the latest developments in their discipline, collaborate on
the introduction of new courses, and encourage the development of
skills critical to academic work.


- A PhD (or highest degree awarded) in: anthropology, area/cultural
studies, economics, gender studies, history, human rights & public
law, international relations, journalism/media studies, philosophy,
political science, psychology, public policy/public health, social
work and sociology. Applicants must be senior or well-established
academics currently employed by an institution of higher education.
Recent degree recipients will NOT be considered.

- Extensive experience in research and scholarly teaching. The
successful candidate will show proficiency in innovative teaching
methodologies specific for the discipline, and a strong commitment to
high-quality teaching.

- Willingness to participate in the peer review of teaching materials
and scholarly interaction available through the Webfolio Project

- Ability to evaluate departmental needs and determine how the
department could most benefit from their expertise. Before final
placement, AFP and the partner department work with the International
Scholar to design a work plan that is both rewarding and feasible for
the fellow and of greatest help to the department.

Application deadline: April 7, 2009.
