Muriel Gold Senior Visiting Professorship

Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies
Faculty of Arts, McGill University

The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) at McGill University, Montreal, Canada invites applications for the position of Muriel Gold Visiting Professor. This nil-salary position is open to applicants wishing to spend one or two academic terms in residence at McGill to carry out research on gender, sexuality or feminist studies. The Institute is located at the center of a stimulating, bilingual, urban environment in the city of Montreal. It offers workspace and support, an ongoing seminar program, and contact with faculty members at McGill and neighboring Montreal universities.

To be eligible, applicants must hold a faculty position in another academic institution. The position is ideal for those with research leave funding, a portable research fellowship, or sabbatical.

While we may be able to provide administrative advice on the following matters, we ask that IGSF visiting professors assume full responsibility on matters relating to visa applications, health insurance, housing and living expenses. Please note in particular that Canada does not pay for hospital or medical services for visitors. We ask all visiting professors to secure health insurance for the duration of the stay in Canada.

Due to the unpredictable circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the terms and conditions of this appointment may be modified or withdrawn depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and government directives. The University will make every effort to inform candidates as soon as possible if there are any changes to the terms of this appointment.
