Foreign Visitors Fellowship Program
Five scholars have been selected as foreign fellows for 2008-09: German Nikolaevich Kim (Head of Korean Studies, Kazakh National University named after al-Farabi), Liudmila Ivanovna Missonova (Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Russia), Andreas Renner (Gerda Henkel Research Fellow, University of Cologne, Germany), Mikhail Vitalievich Shkarovskiy (Leading Researcher, Central State Archive of St. Petersburg, Russia), and Sergey Yurievich Vradiy (Deputy Director, Institute of History, Archeology and Ethnography of Peoples of the Far East, Russia).
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 five to ten months between June 2009 and March 2010.
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 between five and ten 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 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 website. Applications will be accepted until March 31, 2008. Preference will be given to those who have either a firm academic position or a PhD degree (or its equivalent). Applicants will be informed of selection results by mid-July, 2008.
