Richard E. Greenleaf Scholar-in-Residence

The Richard E. Greenleaf Scholar-in-Residence is a program designed to bring rising, mid-career scholars in Latin American Studies to spend one or two semester(s) at the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. Applicants must hold at minimum the academic rank of Associate Professor or its equivalent as well as a record of significant publications that demonstrate the applicant’s promise to stimulate important future advances in their subject field or discipline. In addition, applicants will be judged on their ability to work across disciplines and complement existing assets within the University. Applications are encouraged from individuals from Latin America and the Caribbean region, who can help fortify longer-term institutional collaborations between Tulane and Latin American institutions.

The selection process is directed by the Executive Committee of the Stone Center, which determines a series of critical disciplinary and subject areas that are deemed optimal for advancing the strategic needs of the Latin Americanist community each year. Nevertheless, while these areas are considered desirable, the Committee will consider all applications for the position.

Greenleaf Scholars-in-Residence at the Stone Center are expected to stimulate engagement with Latin Americanist faculty and students in a variety of ways. These might include seminars, workshops, joint research initiatives, public lectures, and/or teaching. The specific responsibilities attached to the appointment are defined in consultation with the Stone Center’s Executive Director.

The application process for the Greenleaf Scholar-in-Residence program is managed through Interfolio. Notices are posted in May for positions to be filled in the subsequent Fall and Spring academic semester. 

To complete an application and to get more information on the application process, please visit the Interfolio Application Link.

As part of the application process, you will have to submit a current CV including contact information for two professional references, as well as a cover letter describing your credentials, preferred semester of appointment, and how residence at Tulane will aid in advancing your research. Also, please provide a title and brief description of a seminar you would be interested in offering.
