IRWG Visiting Scholars Program


The Institute for Research on Women and Gender welcomes Visiting Scholars from around the nation and the world. Faculty members, postdoctoral scholars, and researchers from other institutions whose work focuses on women or gender may reside at IRWG for as long as one academic year. Visiting scholars will have full access to the institute's community and will automatically be affiliated with the Women's Studies Department. Visiting Scholars may join one or more existing study groups or organize one of their own.

  • Visiting Scholars will ordinarily be housed at the institute, where they will be provided with:
    • shared office space
    • an e-mail account
    • University Library privileges
  • No salary, stipend, research funding, health insurance, or travel or moving reimbursement is included.
  • A small fund (a total of $125/semester, not to exceed $250 for an academic year) will be provided for fax and copying charges.

Appointments may be requested for fall or winter terms, or for an entire academic year. (Summer appointments only are discouraged because many university faculty are away during the summer.) Appointments will be awarded based on a fit between the candidate's interests and those of the faculty, scholars, and researchers currently affiliated with the institute and will be subject to space availability.

Applications should include a cover letter describing the candidate's research interests and project(s) to be pursued at the institute, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of two academic references. Candidates should also identify current U-M faculty members, scholars, or researchers whose work relates to their own, or with whom they plan to collaborate. Applications for the next academic year are reviewed on a rolling basis.
