Sciences Po Grenoble, School of Political Studies, Université Grenoble Alpes, is pleased to announce a number of Visiting Professorships for 2024-2025 and to request applications, due to April 1st, 2024.

The Visiting Professorships are open to any faculty who currently holds a full time position in a university.  Applicants should have distinguished scholarly accomplishments in a field of studies taught at Sciences Po Grenoble – UGA – Political Science, Law, Economics, Public and business administration, History and Sociology and a strong teaching record. The visitor will be fully integrated into the academic and intellectual life of Sciences Po. Priority will be given to new or recent collaborative ventures.

Apart from a minimum of 11-hour teaching activity due per month which can be held between September 9th 2024 and December 20th 2024, or January 6th 2025 and June 27th 2025 , the stay also includes activities related to research in collaboration with researchers from Sciences Po Grenoble: small committee research « workshop » as well as a general public conference for all students and personal and a contribution on the blog of Sciences Po Grenoble – UGA.

Solutions will be considered if the physical stay in Grenoble of the visiting professor was to be prevented by national constraints linked to the global health crisis.

Payment is consistent with faculty conditions in French universities. Transport and accommodation costs are not covered by Sciences Po Grenoble – UGA.

Applications are open for a period lasting between one and several months.

The applicant who is selected for a long-term Visiting Professorship (4 months) will be given the responsibility of a complete class (2h/week/12 weeks) (24h) and a number of shorter contributions to already existing modules during his/her 4-month stay.

Applications must transit via a Sciences Po Grenoble – UGA faculty who will be responsible for co-ordinating the academic part of the visit. Applicants are invited to contact the director of the programme in which they intend to teach.

To apply

Please send us the application form together with a full C.V. (including teaching and research experience, and a list of publications) and a cover letter.
