Robert Shapiro's picture

Dear colleagues,

The Judaic Studies Department at Brooklyn College has been authorized to offer Visiting Research Fellowships in Judaic Studies. Applications will be considered from candidates in any field of Jewish studies, including both senior and early career scholars and advanced doctoral students. Of special interest would be research projects related to the many Jewish communities in Brooklyn and the greater New York region.

Although the Visiting Research Fellowships do not at present provide any stipend, Fellows will be provided with office space, computer, printer, and library privileges. Fellows from Israel and other countries will be assisted in obtaining appropriate visas. Fellows will be invited to present their research to the Departmental Seminar and in a public lecture.

Fellows will be responsible for their own travel, housing, maintenance, and insurance. Housing is available in the Kenilworth Residence Hall at Brooklyn College, as well as in apartments in the Midwood-Flatbush neighborhood. There is a convenient subway connection from Brooklyn College to the Center for Jewish History and other Manhattan resources.

Research projects in any field of Jewish studies will be considered..Applications for stays from one to ten months will be considered, although stays of two to four months are more likely to be available.

E-mail applications should be addressed to Prof. Sara Reguer sreguer@brooklyn.cuny.edu, Chair of Judaic Studies Department at Brooklyn College. Application should include cover letter (professional introduction, description of the applicant's research project, and when he or she would like to be in Brooklyn), CV, names of 2 references, and a writing sample. While preference will be given to post-doctoral scholars, doctoral students and scholars in museum studies will also be considered.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but should be submitted no later than three months before a proposed stay during the summer, by April 30 for a stay during Fall semester, and November 1 for a stay during Spring semester.

Please share this announcement with colleagues in the USA and abroad.
