UC Berkeley Call For Candidates

This announcement concerns two of its programs:

  • 1. The bbrg scholars-in-residence program: Applications are due by march 15, 2011

Among its programs and activities, the BBRG has a Scholars-in-Residence Program. Under the auspices of this Program, each year the BBRG hosts a new group of approximately ten competitively selected scholars from the U.S. and abroad for a period of one academic year. 

The BBRG Scholars-in-Residence Program is open to senior and junior faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from any country, whose work is centrally on gender and women. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. at least one year prior to the projected beginning of their residency at BBRG. 

The BBRG provides its Scholars-in-Residence with the following: visiting scholar status at University of California, Berkeley; access to University of California, Berkeley libraries and library privileges; a library orientation session customized for the purposes of the Scholar In Residence's research; the possibility of University of California, Berkeley student research assistants; shared office space; shared computer and internet access; a BBRG Scholars Writing/Reading Group which meets bi-monthly; and a forum for BBRG Scholars-in-Residence to present their scholarly or creative work to the Berkeley campus community and the public.

BBRG is non-stipendiary, and thus Scholars-in-Residence provide their own financial support during the residency. There are fees associated with residency at BBRG. Please see the website for full details.

  • 2. The bbrg affiliated scholars program: Applications are accepted throughout the year

Among the BBRG programs and activities is the BBRG Affiliated Visiting Scholars Program, designed to accommodate scholars who would like to spend a relatively short period of time in residence, ranging from two weeks to one semester. The BBRG Affiliated Visiting Scholars Program is open to senior and junior faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from the U.S. and abroad, whose work is centrally on women and gender. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand one year prior to the beginning of the appointment. The BBRG accepts applications for the BBRG Affiliated Visiting Scholars Program throughout the academic year. 

Affiliated Visiting Scholars who are in residence for less than one month will have access to a shared office, and shared computer and internet access. Those who are here for periods of between one month and six months may have access to UC Berkeley library privileges, a shared office, and shared computer and internet access. Affiliated Visiting Scholars are invited to participate in the BBRG Scholars Writing/Reading Group, and may request that the BBRG organize a public presentation wherein the scholar would present her or his scholarly or creative work to the Berkeley campus community and the public, in a panel format along with other scholars. 

Affiliated Visiting Scholars provide their own financial support during the residency. There are fees associated with residency at BBRG. Please see the website for full details.

*Non-U.S. scholars will need a J-1 visa to visit BBRG. This paperwork takes three months to complete. Please plan accordingly.

The Beatrice Bain Research Group (BBRG) is the University of California, Berkeley's critical feminist research center, established in 1986 to support and coordinate feminist scholarship across disciplines. The BBRG is particularly interested in enabling research on gender in its intersections with sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, nation, religion, postcoloniality, globalization and transnational feminisms.
