    1. The Austrian Visiting Professor will be in residence at Stanford for two quarters (6 months) of an academic year hosted by the Stanford Institute of International Studies (SIIS).

Duties include teaching one course per quarter (related to Austrian interests and wider European issues). Emphasis is on joint research and collaborative projects with Stanford faculty.
    3. Qualifications include credentials to teach and conduct research at Associate Professor rank or above at Stanford.
    4. Priority will be given to scholars whose research interests overlap with SIIS, the European Forum, and related Stanford departments. For the next three years, special consideration will be given to scholars in modern Austrian belles lettres, film, philosophy, and culture. Applications will also be considered from social scientists in the fields of the environment, political economy, security and conflict, global transformation and welfare state. A focus on EU policies will be welcome.
    5. Applicants are expected to identify Stanford faculty with whom they can collaborate if applicants have collaborated or intend to do so. For additional information on SIIS, see
