Visiting Scholar & Post-Doc Programs

The Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Latin American Studies

This open-application program invites applications for two (2) research fellowships for the Academic Year with program administration duties and/or light teaching. Applications are encouraged from candidates engaged in scholarly or creative work in areas that the Stone Center defines as critical for advancing the strategic needs of its Latin Americanist community during the Zemurray-Stone Fellows‘€™ periods of residency. These areas of expertise will necessarily change from year to year, but they will be stated at the time each new application process is opened.

Fellows are expected to pursue their own research and to participate in the full intellectual life of the Center. Fellows will be selected based on intellectual merit, experience, and the potential impact of their planned research for the Stone Center. Prior to appointment, the Executive Director of the Stone Center and the Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellow will prepare an Individual Development Plan that defines the scope of work for the Fellow. Appointments are made for an academic year, but individuals may apply for reappointment for a second year.

The application process for the Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellowship program is managed through Interfolio. Notices of the Fellowships competition are posted in September with an application deadline of December 31. Successful candidates are notified beginning February 15, following academic confirmation that their degrees will be conferred before the commencement of their appointments for the period July 1 to June 30.

This summer educator institute is the third institute in a series being offered by Tulane University, The University of Georgia and Vanderbilt University. This series of institutes is designed to enhance the presence of Central America in the K-12 classroom. Each year, participants engage with presenters, resources and other K-12 colleagues to explore diverse topics in Central America with a focus on people and the environment. It is not required to have participated in past institutes to join us.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University is excited to host and coordinate this year’s institute. Tulane University and New Orleans are both unique and important places to explore the deep connections to Central America with a focus on people and environment. With presentations by leading historians and sociologists on Central America, environment and race we are excited to share the work and resources from presenters as well as the unique resources at Tulane.
