Synopsis                 The Council for International Exchange of Scholars provides an award for teaching or teaching/research opportunities in Canada for a period of four months in the area of Arts and Humanities. The following chair opportunities are available:

Chair in American Literature at McGill University: Grantee will teach one advanced course in the area of his or her current research and contribute to a faculty working group on African-American Literature and History, which brings together interested faculty members from the Departments of English, art history, history, and North American studies. The English department at McGill University invites scholars with significant records of research in African-American Literature and/or writing of the Black Diaspora. A focus on any author or authors of any period from the 19th-century to the present would be welcome.

Chair in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts at the University of Alberta: The Faculty of Arts is one of the largest research and teaching centers in Western Canada. It houses over 20 departments and interdisciplinary programs, numerous institutes and more than 350 full-time faculty members. Several of its departments are ranked indisputably among the finest in Canada. These include the departments of drama, English, linguistics, art and design and political science. The Faculty of Arts is home to a large concentration of research institutes and centers. They produce world-class research in a variety of areas, including Austrian and Central European studies, Ukrainian folklore, prairie immigration and population research, U.S. policy studies, Canadian literature and ethnomusicology, among others. The Parkland Institute is a leading Western Canadian think-tank devoted to public policy issues.

The grantee will conduct research, develop collaborations and guest lecture at undergraduate or graduate level, deliver public lectures, give seminar presentations, participate in conferences and otherwise contribute to ongoing research activities at the host institution. Please note that McGill University is an English-speaking institution, however, some resource material may be in French. French is not required but would be an asset.

Researchers are required to be affiliated with a local institution of higher education in mainland China during their grant term. The local host institution should have the capacity and official permission to host foreign students and scholars. Applicants may spend one month of a six- to eight-month grant or up to three months of a nine- to 10-month grant at research facilities in Hong Kong or Taiwan. The length of the grant is from three to ten months. (For Flex Grants, the grant duration must be a minimum of four months and a maximum of six months; grant segments must be a minimum of one month and maximum of three months; and frant segments may be spread over two or three consecutive academic years, with a maximum of one segment per year.) A PhD (or other terminal degree) is not required. These awards are for individuals who are not China specialists, who seek to establish a focus on China in their work or to undertake research on a comparative project. Assistant professors must be three years beyond the receipt of their PhD at the time of application. Nonacademic professionals with a record of scholarly or professional publications may apply. The award is open to academics and appropriately qualified professionals outside of academia. Mandarin language fluency sufficient to complete the research project is required. Applicants must submit a language proficiency report. If the applicant does not have Mandarin language skills, they should explicitly address the issue in their discussion of the feasibility of the project in their project proposal.
