Call for Applications: Faculty Leave Fellowship, The Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University, 2022-2023

January 1, 2022

The Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University is accepting applications for a one-year faculty leave residential fellowship for scholars of the contemporary Middle East. The fellowship is open to all disciplines—particularly politics, economics, history, religion, sociology, or anthropology—for the 2022-2023 academic year. Successful applicants must be tenure track or tenured professors (or equivalent) with a well-established publication record seeking a faculty leave appointment and interested in engaging in a substantive research or book project, mentoring the Center’s junior research fellows, and contributing to the Center’s Middle East Brief series.

Eligibility: The 2022-2023 faculty leave fellowship is open to all faculty members, tenured and non-tenured, in the ranks of assistant, associate, full, and emeritus professor who work on the contemporary Middle East and North Africa.

Terms: The faculty leave fellowship is a one-year appointment beginning September 1, 2022 and ending May 31, 2023. The fellowship is designed to supplement the scholar’s faculty leave salary from their institution and will provide a stipend plus funding for research, travel, and related expenses. The fellowship stipend is set at three levels based on academic rank (or rank equivalency based on scholarly attainment): $40,000 for assistant professor or career equivalent; $50,000 for associate professor or career equivalent; and $70,000 for full professor, emeritus, or career equivalent. The Crown Center will determine the level based on the candidate’s rank or equivalent rank as of the application deadline. Fringe benefits, when not provided by the scholar’s home institution, can be made available during the appointment period.

Fellows are required to be in residence at the Crown Center during the tenure of the fellowship and be fully relieved of teaching and service responsibilities at their home university. During their residence, fellows write a Middle East Brief and participate in all Crown Center events, including seminars, workshops, meetings, and retreats.
