Description: The Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) is pleased to announce its annual Tinker Visiting Professorship for academic year 2022-2023. (Fall 2022 – Spring 2023).  Columbia is one of five major universities to have a professorship endowed by the Tinker Foundation.

The visitor is also asked to give two public lectures. The visiting professor receives a stipend, office space at ILAS, assistance arranging Columbia housing, roundtrip airfare from their home country, and part-time research assistance. Funding can also be made available to support conferences or other events at Columbia related to the visitor’s fields of interest during or following their semester of residence.
Qualifications: Applicants are invited to submit a one- to two-page statement of interest that explains the qualifications of the candidate, their research concentration, and the specific goals of the visit to Columbia. They will also need to provide a current and summarized curriculum vita and a note from a Columbia faculty member on campus endorsing their application.  The ILAS Executive Committee reviews proposals by the beginning of May and invites a limited number of candidates to submit a full application, which will consist of a personal statement describing their research and proposed teaching areas with the description of one course, a complete vita, and the names of two references.
