opportunities for sabbaticants & doctoral students: East Coast Edition

Sabbatical coming up? Doctoral student in your third year? Think about these opportunities at Schulich (Dalhousie) school of law in Halifax.  Great community out there, feminists (for instance, the Dean, and two new faculty members, here and here) abound in many substantive areas (not just law of the sea), Halifax is lovely (the OCEAN), and other non ocean related goodness as well.

Schulich Distinguished Visiting Scholar: Call for Expressions of Interest (2013‐2014)
The Schulich Distinguished Visiting Scholar, an academic with an established record of scholarly achievement, will be
expected to enliven the intellectual life of the faculty by participating in our scholarly activities (giving a public seminar
or lecture) and by teaching one course (to be determined in consultation with the Dean). He or she will be expected to
spend a minimum of one term (either September through December or January through April) at the Schulich School of
Law at Dalhousie University and may spend the academic year.
The Schulich Visiting Scholar will receive a stipend of up to $20,000. For more information & how to apply click here (pdf).

The Schulich Fellowship: Call for Expressions of Interest
The Schulich Fellow is expected to participate actively in the intellectual life of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie
University in a way that supports his or her development as a scholar and teacher. The Schulich Fellow is expected to teach
up to six credits (possibly in the first year program) and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the faculty,
including by participating in the faculty seminar series. It is anticipated that he or she will be working toward publishing parts
of his or her graduate work and conducting new research. It is not anticipated that the Fellow will carry administrative
responsibilities. The Fellow is expected to be in residence at the School from the beginning of August 2013 through the end of
May 2014.
Applications will be adjudicated on a combination of academic record (including research productivity) and the fit between
the applicant’s research and teaching interests and the clusters of research and teaching at the School. Applicants are
expected to be doctoral students in at least their third year of their doctoral studies.
The Schulich Fellow will receive a stipend of up to $40,000.   For more information & how to apply click here (pdf).

New options for Grad Students with Academic Aspirations & Visiting Profs Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie Uni (Halifax, Nova Scotia): Deadlines Early December 2011

Deadline on the visiting scholar program (which includes a requirement that you teach + a stipend is December 1, 2011.  Deadline on the Fellowship program (stipend of up to $40K) is December 15, 2011 (here’s a bit more information on that one):

The Schulich Fellow is expected to teach up to six credits (possibly in the first year program) and to participate actively in the scholarly activities of the faculty, including by participating in the faculty seminar series. It is anticipated that he or she will be working toward publishing parts of his or her graduate work and conducting new research. It is not anticipated that the Fellow will carry administrative responsibilities. The Fellow is expected to be in residence at the School from the beginning of August 2012 through the end of May 2013.

Pic is of Halifax, a lovely small city.  Dalhousie is off to the right I think (comment bait).
