Teaching and Research Opportunities Abroad

If you are interested in teaching or conducting research abroad, there are many opportunities available for you. Below are several programs that may interest you:

Lancaster University/London Program

Kansai Gaidai

The Visiting Professor Program at Kansai Gaidai offers professors on sabbatical free, furnished on-campus housing with utilities in Japan in exchange for teaching a course. Research focusing on Japan or Asia is preferred but not required.

Advanced Studies in England (ASE)

Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS)

Institute for American Universities (IAU)

IAU's Resident Fellows Program is designed for professors on sabbatical to conduct seminars with IAU students, give public lectures, and conduct research in one of IAU's programs.

Lutheran College Washington Semester (LCWS)

LCWS provides housing accommodations to faculty who are conducting research in Washington, DC during the summer.

Other opportunities

The above list is not exhaustive of the opportunities to teach and conduct research abroad. If there is a region you are interested in that is not listed, contact CGE for information about opportunities in the region you are interested in. Embedded courses are another option for professors looking to incorporate the abroad experience into their teaching repertoire. These courses are offered on-campus, but involve a trip/travel component to the region of focus that augments the classroom experience. The Center for Global Education is a good reference for professors interested in planning an embedded course. Please see CGE for details.
