Visiting International Fellowship in the Humanities at the Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic
Call for Applications
Applications are invited for one Visiting International Fellowship in the Humanities at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic. The Silesian University in Opava was established immediately after the fall of Communism in the process of transformation and democratisation of higher education in the Czech Republic.
The announced Visiting International Fellowship in duration of four months is intended to increase the number of international faculty at the Silesian University, to foster scholarly networking and to enable the fellowship holder to carry out research in the Czech Republic.

The teaching load will be four courses in the area of fellow’s expertise. English is foreseen as the main language of instruction.
The fellow will receive a monthly stipend of approximately 1200 euro (exchange rate dependence). The funding is supposed to cover all expenses. The Visiting Fellowship lasts for four months and is tenable either from March to June or from September to December 2013.
The institutional support of the Silesian University should be acknowledged in all oral and written publications that result from the Fellowship.
