Job description

The Benson Center for the Study of Western Civilization invites applications for sabbatical researchers to visit and serve as Sabbatical Fellows on an ongoing basis. Faculty in fields or with sabbatical projects related to conservative programs, projects, and/or activities of the Center are eligible to apply. Though it is assumed that Sabbatical Fellows will spend much of their time conducting their own research, the Center would expect them to participate in bi-weekly faculty seminars and other activities. Sabbatical Fellows will be appointed as Visiting Researcher, given office space in the Center, and University of Colorado privileges.

Anticipated start date: Fall 2024

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be:

Work on faculty research that relates to the Benson Center's mission to promote critical reflection on the distinctive traditions and political perspectives that characterize Western Civilization.

If such support is not possible, candidates with part-time support can apply for additional support from the Benson Center to match the home institution’s contribution (for instance, one semester of salary support to match the home institution’s sabbatical salary, plus a yearlong appointment in the Benson Center). If external funding is not available, the Benson Center will provide a monthly salary between $6,111.11 - $6,700 for a full-time position, dependent on experience. Benefits will also be provided for 50% time or greater appointments, including health insurance.

What We Require:

Completed Ph.D., or a doctoral degree in progress with a dissertation defense date scheduled.
