Award Activity

Teaching 

The visiting professor will teach a maximum of two graduate courses, with a maximum total of 15 to 40 students in each. Students will be Master's students in the Global and International Studies Program. Each course consists of 42-45 teaching hours in the classroom, divided between lectures and discussion. This translates into one three-hour meeting per week (similar to a seminar class in the U.S.), plus student advising during office hours. The professor is expected to mentor and advise students on their Master’s theses.

The professor is expected to teach one or more of the following courses (related to the subject matter, designed by the professor, and approved by the Academic Director of the Global and International Studies Program):

  • Global Security or other area of Conflict Resolution and Analysis
  • International Organizations (UN, World Bank, IMF, WTO, IDB, etc.)
  • Terrorism in the 21st Century
  • Nationalism and Populism in the 21st Century
  • Global Health and Migration
  • Science, Technology and Society
  • Negotiation: Theory and Practice

Research

The university welcomes contributions to the monthly "Tribune" digital newsletter, writing on any topics of their interest, integrating in existing research groups, and participating in seminars and/or conferences. There will be ample opportunities for research collaboration. 

Candidates can expect to dedicate approximately 70% of their time to teaching and 30% to research.

For complete information on the Master’s Program, please visit this link and search under “Programs.” 

Please note that, although much of the online information on the host institution website is in Spanish, all faculty at the Global and International Studies Program speak English, and the scholar will only be expected to teach in English. Detailed information about his/her tasks will be provided to candidates in a timely manner and in English after being selected.

Scholars selected for this award will be required to:
  • Advise and/or mentor students
  • Assist in faculty, curriculum, and/or program development
  • Conduct a research project of the applicant’s choosing
  • Teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses designated by the host institution
