The UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies invites applications for Visiting Faculty and Scholar positions for the 2021-2022 academic year (September 20, 2021 - June 10, 2022). 

Visiting Faculty

Faculty with full-time, permanent appointments at Israeli universities--lecturers, senior lecturers, associate professors, and full professors--as well as emeriti faculty are welcome to apply. We are seeking faculty who have a high level of spoken English, and are able to teach at least two courses at UCLA related to modern Israel (the courses do not have to focus solely on Israel). The academic year at UCLA consists of three 10-week quarters of instruction (Fall, Winter and Spring). Visiting faculty must be present on campus for at least two quarters, preferably for the entire academic year. In addition to teaching, visiting faculty are expected to participate in the Nazarian Center’s research activities and public outreach and engage with the broader academic community on campus. We welcome applications from scholars working in a wide range of disciplines, particularly in the social sciences and the humanities. Women and minority applicants are encouraged to apply. This visiting faculty position will be partially funded by the Israel Institute through its visiting faculty program, so applicants will also need to formally apply for this program by September 17, 2020. 

The application deadline for Visiting Faculty is September 4, 2020.

Application Requirements

1. Letter of Interest 2. Curriculum Vitae 3. Teaching proposal, including course descriptions and sample syllabi. Please send your applications to:

Visiting Scholars

Visiting scholars pursue their own independent research related to modern Israel and are also expected to actively participate in the Nazarian Center’s research and outreach activities. These positions are unpaid, but visiting scholars are provided with office space (when available) and access to UCLA's library and other resources. Applications for the Visiting Scholars program will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with a final deadline of March 1, 2021.
