Roosevelt House offers work space and limited administrative support for scholars at other institutions who are collaborating on joint research projects with a Roosevelt House Faculty Associate. Roosevelt House can accommodate up to three such scholars per year. Candidates must have their own independent funding. Roosevelt House will provide a workstation in a shared office, and will arrange for a temporary Hunter NetID card, which grants access to the college’s library and to other privileges enjoyed by members of the Hunter faculty and staff. In exchange, visiting research scholars are expected to give at least one public lecture and/or participate in a faculty seminar, lunch seminar, conference or course. They are also expected to be available to meet informally with students.
Visiting scholars should have a PhD in an appropriate discipline or a relevant professional degree in, for example, law, journalism, health, education or social work. Their research should address an aspect of public policy, human rights or another area directly related to the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Visiting Scholars must have their own funding and must be collaborating with a Faculty Associate at Hunter College.
On behalf of the candidate, the collaborating Faculty Associate must submit:
- Updated curriculum vitae
- Brief (up to 3-page) proposal about the work they wish to do at Roosevelt House (for either 6 months or one year, including dates)
- Letter of nomination
Proposals are due by November 3, 2016 for the 2017 spring semester.
