Resident Fellows Program

Overview
The Resident Fellows Program at IAU is designed for visiting professors on sabbatical leave from their home institutions. Fellows can integrate into IAU's existing academic infrastructures in France and Spain which include faculty, facilities, housing, library, and archives. Many of the past Fellows worked on books or research projects, as well as collaborated with different IAU professors and students on various projects and learning activities. Fellows do not teach at IAU. However, in exchange for the fellowship, they are asked to provide one or two guest lectures to IAU students in their area of expertise. Faculty interested in teaching should consider IAU's customized/facutly-led opportunities. The Resident Fellows Program is available at IAU's Aix-en-Provence, France and Barcelona, Spain campuses.

Eligibility
IAU welcomes applications from Faculty at participating U.S. partner institutions.  Partner institutions include colleges and universities with signed memoranda of understanding with IAU.  IAU will occasionally accept nominations from distinguished faculty from the EU, the Middle East, and North Africa. Ultimately the deliberations and final decision made by the Selection Committee are primarily based on the research project and the overall connection to IAU and our commitment to the languages, cultures, and history of the Mediterranean.   
 

Expectations
While at IAU, the Resident Fellow can expect to:

  • Interact and consult with IAU’s experienced faculty
  • Participate in select IAU courses and programs at the discretion of those faculty teaching the courses
  • Promote the intellectual and cultural exchange at IAU through a series of public lectures in their field of expertise
  • Conduct smaller seminars and discussions with IAU students and faculty
  • Develop their own research during the Fellowship period
  • Participate in various excursions to neighboring regions with students. Some examples for the Aix-en-Provence campus include day trips to Arles, Avignon, Bonnieux, LaCiotat, Nice, and Marseille.

Application

Interested U.S. Faculty must complete the IAU Resident Fellows Application. Any questions can be directed to Ms. Sarah Maharjan and Professor Alan Roberts, Chair of the Resident Fellows selection committee.
