LSE and Sciences Po are delighted to continue their long-term academic collaboration through an annual faculty mobility scheme. Arrangements for a seventh wave of visiting faculty in the 2018/19 academic year will enable faculty to spend at least one month in a host department (or unit) at the other institution in order to: engage with students through a meaningful teaching commitment that meets a need in the host department; foster networks between colleagues at their home and host departments (or institutions); and serve wider departmental and/or institutional interests where possible.
To maximise flexibility, the scheme has been designed with the following two modes:
- Mode A: Shorter visits of 1 month, whereby visiting faculty will deliver at least 8 hours of teaching (or a short course) and spend at least 4 hours with PhD students;
- Mode B: Longer visits of 3 months, whereby visiting faculty will deliver at least 20 hours of teaching, spend at least 10 hours with PhD students and deliver a departmental or public lecture.
LSE and Sciences Po will each fund one Mode A and one Mode B visit during the September 2018 to June 2019 period. Successful applicants will continue to receive their normal salary plus a travel grant from their home institution, as well as a subsistence allowance or salary from the host institution. Please note that the application deadline is Sunday 13th May 2018.
