Funding to develop applications for a
MARIE SKLODOWSKI-CURIE EUROPEAN FELLOWSHIP
to hold at the
Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL)
University of Aberdeen
Deadline for proforma: Tuesday 12th May 2015
The Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL) at the University of Aberdeen invites researchers of any nationality who identify closely with our research agenda, and who hold a PhD and significant post-doctoral experience, to spend up to a week at CISRUL preparing an application for a Marie Curie European Fellowship, which would allow them to spend 1-2 years with us at Aberdeen.
Since Marie Curie stresses the fit between applicant and institution, we ask that you begin by reflecting on whether CISRUL is the right place for you to develop your career as a researcher. CISRUL aims to produce conversation across the social sciences and humanities on key concepts of the modern polity, including citizenship, civil society and rule of law, as well as democracy, human rights, nationalism and pluralism.
If you believe your work may fall within the CISRUL remit, please take a look at the detailed information about our members, events and publications at http://cisrul.wordpress.com. The next step would be to a) contact the CISRUL member whose discipline and interests are closest to yours, and then b) fill out the proforma on the website, so we can consider inviting you to Aberdeen to spend a week developing your application.
CISRUL will fund travel (up to £750) as well as board & lodging (up to 7 days) for the most promising applicants to visit us for a week, likely in mid to late June. During the week you would attend a variety of information sessions, about Marie Curie and about the University, as well as meeting regularly with your proposed supervisor/s and with a wide range of the University’s professional services.

The History Program in the Indiana University Division of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) anticipates vacancies for adjunct instructor(s) in a survey class in World History before 1800 (History H108), and in a survey class in World History after 1800 (History H109) during the fall semester of 2015. The classes often are taught as breaking nearer 1500, depending on instructor preference.
IUPUC is a nonresidential campus serving traditional and nontraditional students in the south-east-central region of Indiana. About half of all IUPUC students are of non-traditional age, and most IUPUC students are first-generation college students.
The section of History H108 will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon until 1:15. The section of History H109 will on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00-4:15. Class size for each will probably be in the vicinity of 25-30.
Minimum requirements are an active ABD in an appropriate field of History, or a PhD, and some teaching experience. It is understood that not all plausible applicants will have taught a class as instructor of record, and all instructors will find some part of a world history survey a stretch. Pay for an ABD with teaching experience in the IU system will probably be in the vicinity of $2208; in addition there is a modest travel stipend (NOT mileage) for those coming from Bloomington, Indianapolis, or a similar distance. Those with a PhD will receive a slightly higher pay rate.
Those who have previously taught at Columbus, been interviewed at Columbus, or submitted materials at Columbus, are encouraged to apply for this opportunity, as are those who have not had previous contact with IUPUC.
Those holding appointments elsewhere in the IU system will need to be able to fit this appointment within applicable load limits (those unsure of their status should apply). Graduate students will probably require the permission of their adviser and \ or program.
Opportunities for future terms are possible, dependent on campus needs and resources.
Those interested should contact Dr. Doug Gardner, Coordinator of the History Program, at email@example.com, as soon as possible. An emailed statement of interest and a brief CV, showing at the minimum education, teaching experience, and a dissertation title will suffice for initial screening. Dr. Gardner’s phone number is 812-348-7206, and his postal address is IUPUC, 4601 Central Avenue, Columbus, Indiana 47203.
