Vanderbilt University’s Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI) seeks up to three Senior Visiting Scholars to conduct research on political institutions, opinion or behavior during the 2022-2023 academic year. Applications are welcome from scholars of all ranks or equivalent professional positions.

Qualifications The specific length of the appointment will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis, but we especially welcome applications from scholars who are interested in spending the entire academic year at Vanderbilt. There is no teaching requirement associated with these positions. Successful candidates will receive financial support (typically, half-salary to support a full year’s leave or a stipend to cover travel and housing expenses for shorter visits), office space, and computing resources.

Application Instructions Candidates should submit a vita and a cover letter describing your research project, what you hope to accomplish while at CSDI, and why spending time at Vanderbilt would provide a useful setting for that research. The letter should also indicate how long the desired time in residence would be and whether there are existing financial arrangements that would be relevant (e.g., if you have a paid semester’s leave and health care benefits). Applicants should submit materials electronically at: http://apply.interfolio.com/99733. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those received before January 21, 2022.
