Fulbright Emory Distinguished Chair in Brazilian Studies

“Brazil in Transnational Perspective”

January-May, 2018

Announcing an exciting opportunity for Brazilian faculty to spend a semester at Emory!

Emory University, located in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States, is a top-ranked private institution recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the world's leading health care systems. A university committed to global engagement, Emory is home to more than 2,600 international students, and more than two in five Emory undergraduates participate in study abroad programs. Emory hosts 1,200 international scholars and has active research and exchange agreements with more than 200 institutions abroad, including several throughout Brazil.

Building on strong faculty ties, in 2015 Emory selected Brazil as one of five focus countries aligned with Emory’s mission and strengths and entered into a five-year agreement with Fulbright Brasil to support a distinguished visiting scholar from Brazil for one semester each year.

Bringing new perspectives and knowledge about contemporary issues in Latin America, the faculty member chosen to be the Emory Distinguished Chair in Brazilian Studies will receive a maintenance stipend and funds to cover airfare and housing for one academic term to support research and teaching activities at Emory.

This program strengthens cooperation between Brazilian institutions and Emory across a wide range of disciplines ranging from the humanities and social sciences to public health and biomedicine. The research produced through this cooperation will be incorporated into the teaching programs of Emory and the visiting professor’s home institution.

The deadline for applications is October 17, 2016.
