Sponsored Scholars-in-Residence Program

The Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture (CMBC) invites CMBC Faculty Affiliates to nominate colleagues at other universities and research institutions for our inaugural Sponsored Scholars-in-Residence program. This program allows our affiliates to host an on-leave colleague or collaborator from another university or research institute for a one-month residence.  The goal is to enhance meaningful interaction with a visiting scholar who has the potential to foster interdisciplinary dialog and/or stimulate interdisciplinary research or teaching collaborations on campus. 

Application Information

Nominator: Any tenure- or lecture-track faculty affiliate of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture is eligible to nominate a scholar-in-residence candidate.

Candidate Scholar: Any full-time faculty member (or equivalent) at a U.S. or international university or research institution is eligible to be nominated as a scholar-in-residence.

  1. Application form, completed and submitted by the sponsoring Emory faculty affiliate (in consultation with the candidate visitor as appropriate).
  2. Description (max. 2 pages) of candidate visitor’s research, relevance to the interests of faculty and students within the Emory community, and specific proposed activities (such as guest lecturing in a class, hosting a lunch discussion, giving a talk, or offering a tutorial) that would benefit the Emory community.
  3. The CV of the nominated scholar-in-residence candidate

Priority will be given to nominations that exhibit

  • Interdisciplinary scholarship relating to mind, brain, and/or culture that is anchored to empirical science
  • Potential relevance to multiple faculty, labs, departments or programs
  • Relevance to a course or courses being offered or student projects being conducted
