Visiting Scholars Program
The Center for Jewish History’s Visiting Scholar Program invites scholars working in the field of Jewish Studies who have completed their doctorate or its equivalent to apply for an affiliation with the Center and to work in the collections of one or more of its partner institutions: American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. For their period of affiliation, Visiting Scholars will receive workspace at the Center, a Center email address, and access to the cullections housed at the Center for Jewish History. The Visiting Scholar Program does not provide a stipend or financial support.
Visiting Scholars will be expected to commit to a regular presence at the Center for a minimum of three months, working at the Center at least two days per week. Visiting Scholars are expected to play an active rule in the Center’s Fellowship Program activities by attending bi-weekly meetings and either presenting an academic seminar on their work or participating in a public program. Scholars may apply to be affiliated with the Center for a full academic year (September – May), the fall semester (September – December) or spring semester (mid-January – May), or for the summer (June – August).
Junior and senior scholars, including those who are on leave from their home institutions, are encouraged to apply, as are independent scholars and scholars who are between academic appointments.
