The Beatrice Bain Research Group (BBRG) is the University of California at Berkeley’s center for research on gender and women. This announcement concerns two of its programs:
I. THE BBRG SCHOLARS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
Each year the BBRG hosts a group of approximately fifteen competitively selected Scholars In Residence as fellows for the duration of the academic year. The Scholars In Residence Program is open to faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from any country, whose research is centrally on gender and women. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. at least one year prior to the projected beginning of their residency at BBRG. The BBRG is non-stipendiary. The BBRG provides a visiting scholar appointment to the University of California at Berkeley, library access, computer and printer access, a reading/writing group, research assistance if desired, and a public forum for Scholars in Residence to present their research to the Berkeley campus and wider community.
For more information on the BBRG Scholars In Residence Program, and application procedures, forms and materials, please see the following website: http://socrates.berkeley.edu:7013/scholarprog.html
PLEASE NOTE THAT APPLICATIONS FOR THE BBRG SCHOLARS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM FOR THE 2008-2009 ACADEMIC YEAR ARE DUE ON MARCH 15, 2008.
II. THE BBRG AFFILIATED SCHOLARS PROGRAM
Under the auspices of the BBRG Affiliated Scholars Program, the BBRG currently accepts two to three short term Affiliated Scholars at any one time, on a rotating basis, throughout the academic year. The Affiliated Scholars Program is open to faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from any country, whose research is centrally on gender and women. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. at least one year prior to the projected beginning of their residency at BBRG. The BBRG is non-stipendiary.
Scholars are responsible for Berkeley affiliation fees. International scholars are also responsible for any related visa fees. Affiliated Scholars remain in residence for periods ranging from two weeks to one semester and have access to many University of California at Berkeley and BBRG resources.
The application to the Affiliated Scholars Program is comprised of:
1. a letter of intent (including: the proposed length of residency, and start and end dates; and a summary of the research project in two to three paragraphs)
2. a separate abstract summarizing the research to be undertaken (one short paragraph, preceded by title of research)
3. a full curriculum vitae
4. a writing sample.
Please send these materials at least 10 weeks prior to the beginning of your projected affiliation period to:
Professor Paola Bacchetta, BBRG Director
Department of Gender and Women#s Studies
