The Chapin School’s Scholars-in-Residence Program offers innovative, inspired pre- and post-doctoral scholars or independent researchers an exciting opportunity—a structured two-year residency rooted in Chapin’s commitment to an inclusive and collaborative model of teaching and learning. For academics keen to contribute their expertise to and learn from colleagues at a leading K–12 independent school, Chapin’s Scholars-in-Residence Program serves as a mutually beneficial and intellectually sustaining incubator for curriculum development, pedagogical growth, research endeavors, and professional partnership within a joyful learning environment.
We are particularly interested in seeking Scholars with academic expertise in any of the following disciplines, in any combination: arts, history, literature, politics, and/or gender and sexuality of the African, Asian, or Hispanic/Latino/a/Latinx/e diaspora; scholars of Indigenous cultures; and scholars in STEM fields. One Scholar may apply to be assigned to Chapin’s 11th-grade interdisciplinary course, The American Experience, a team-taught course in literature, history, and the arts. For this role, we specifically seek an individual with a scholarly focus on the arts.
Scholars-in-Residence will report jointly to Chapin's Director of Academic Program and Director of Equitable Practices. They will be expected to participate in activities and classes that require them to be on campus a minimum of eight hours per week. Scholars will enjoy a dedicated workspace at Chapin, as well as access to Chapin’s facilities, including the Annenberg Center for Learning and Research. Each Scholar will receive a $25,000 stipend for each year of their two-year program, dedicated workspace, a laptop computer, and a Chapin email address. How To Apply: Scholars should submit their cover letter, résumé, and statement of educational philosophy by July 25, 2022. The committee will then begin review of applications, with the goal of completing our selection process by mid-August.
