Visiting Israeli Faculty, Scholars, and Artists
The MGSDII Visiting Faculty Program funds Israeli academics to teach about Israel at universities in San Diego, California. This program gives both tenured, tenure-track and, in some cases, post-doc Israeli academics the opportunity to spend an academic semester or year abroad teaching about modern Israel. The MGSDII places visiting faculty across many disciplines at University of California San Diego (UCSD), San Diego State University (SDSU) and California State University at San Marcos (CSUSM).
This academic year, there are nine visiting Israelis teaching about modern Israel at universities in San Diego across disciplines. Subjects are as diverse as sustainability, political science, screenwriting, filmmaking, urban planning, history and sociology.
Currently, the MGSDII is interviewing for the 2021-2022 academic year and beyond. For the 2022-2023 academic year, the Initiative currently has invitations for scholars in history of modern Israel and the Middle East and political science. Visiting scholars must have a PhD in the field and must have experience teaching at an Israeli university or college. Typically, visiting scholars teach two (2) courses about modern Israel each semester and/or quarter.
To apply for the MGSDII Visiting Faculty program, please send your C.V. and titles and course description for two courses about Israel that you propose to teach. To be considered for the 2021-2022 academic year, please submit before December 1, 2021 to Susan Lapidus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
