Resident Fellows Program

The Resident Fellows Program is designed for visiting professors on sabbatical leave from their home institutions to tap into IAU's existing academic infrastructure and take advantage of the vast available resources including IAU's faculty, classroom space, housing, library and archives. The Fellows Program is available in Aix-en-Provence, France and beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, in Barcelona, Spain.
 

While at IAU, the Resident Fellow can expect to:

  • Interact and consult with IAU’s experienced faculty
  • Participate in the IAU program of their choice
  • Promote the intellectual and cultural exchange at IAU through a series of public lectures in their field of expertise
  • Conduct smaller seminars and discussions with IAU students and faculty
  • Develop their own research during the Fellowship period
  • Participate in various excursions to neighboring regions with students. Some examples include day trips to Nice, Marseille, and Bonnieux

Application

Interested U.S. Faculty must complete the IAU Resident Fellows Application. Any questions can be directed to Ms. Sarah Maharjan and Professor Alan Roberts, Chair of the Resident Fellows selection committee.
