In the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies’ Distinguished Visiting Professor (DVP) program, an exceptional senior scholar with a reputation for interdisciplinary engagement is invited to spend one academic term (4 months), in full-time residence at the Institute. It is expected that this outstanding international scholar will pursue a specific scholarly agenda, participate in Wall Scholar and Institute activities, and organize a specific activity, such as a workshop, artistic performance, or speaker series, thereby contributing to the intellectual life of the Institute and its affiliated scholars. These distinguished visitors will also have an opportunity to engage large public audiences in discussions of important ideas. The DVP award is open to scholars from any country. The awardee will receive $50,000 CAD in undesignated research funds, which may be used for travel, accommodation and other expenses.
Deadline is Thursday, November 30, 2017 and complete application packages must be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
