Foreign Visitors Fellowship Program
The SRC has invited three noted scholars as foreign fellows for 2006-07: Sergei Kozlov (Department of History, St. Petersburg State University, Russia), Póti László (Center for Strategic and Defense Studies, National Defense University, Hungary) and Su Fenglin (Institute of Russian Studies, Heilongjiang Provincial Academy of Social Sciences, China).
These three scholars will stay in Sapporo through March 2007.
Three scholars have been selected as foreign fellows for 2007-08: Gulmira Sultangaliyeva (Aktobe State Pedagogical Institute, Kazakhstan), Anatoly Remnev (Omsk State University, Russia) and Dmitry Pavlov (Moscow Institute of Radioengineering, Electronics and Automation, Russia). They will stay in Sapporo from June/July 2007 through March 2008.
The SRC invites applications for the Foreign Visitors Fellowship Program from Slavic studies specialists in the fields of literature, history, international relations, economics, political sciences, sociology, geography and ethnology, tenable for nine to ten months between June 2008 and March 2009.
The SRC will provide one round-trip air ticket, a living allowance, inexpensive accommodation in the University’s Foreign Scholars’ Residence, a domestic travel allowance and an office at the SRC with the use of a personal computer. Visiting scholars are expected to spend 9-10 months at the SRC, but are free to engage in a limited amount of travel for professional purposes in Japan. Although there are no teaching duties, visiting scholars are expected to give talks and hold consultations with the members of staff and graduate students. The SRC expects fellows to give two formal presentations or lectures on topics of their choice as well as occasional seminars. The SRC further expects the fellows to contribute an article during their stay in Sapporo to the SRC’s international refereed journal Acta Slavica Iaponica, on a subject of their choice within the broad confines of Slavic, Russian, and East European studies.
Application forms are available from the SRC or from its Web site. Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2007. Preference will be given to those who have either a particular academic position or a PhD degree (or its equivalent). Applicants will be informed of the selection results by mid-July, 2007.
