The Sanford School of Public Policy (SSPP) at Duke University is interested in attracting qualified faculty from Armenian universities to apply for a visiting professorship at SSPP to conduct research and, as appropriate, provide lectures.
Candidates must demonstrate English proficiency and an interest in sustainable development and nation-building in Armenia or in conflict resolution in the surrounding region.
Deadline for submission of application for visiting during the 2016-2017 year is January 25, 2016.
A completed application requires the following items:
- A statement from the applicant that includes:
- An outline of his or her research interests, a proposed research agenda, a rationale for conducting this research at SSPP, and how this research complements the work of our faculty;
- a list of lecture topics that the applicant would be prepared to give if there is an appropriate opportunity; and
- evidence of his or her level of English proficiency;
- A Curriculum Vitae;
- A letter of support from the applicant’s department, school or university; and
- Indication of the time period in 2016-2017 that he/she is available to travel to SSPP. [Traditionally, the professorship is for one 4-month semester (mid-August to mid-December, or January through May), the equivalent, or a shorter period of time.];
- Any other material or information that may be relevant.
The research and teaching interests of our faculty and activities of SSPP can be found at http://www.sanford.duke.edu/. Please note that a number of faculty listed on the website may be on leave from the University each year. A Sanford committee will consider completed applications, conduct interviews, and announce decisions in Spring 2016.
The Visiting Professorship includes a modest level of financial support to cover the cost of housing, airfare and a living stipend for up to one semester/4 months.
All material can be mailed to the following address:
