Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)
The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus — envisioned as a "City of Learning" — was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Today the world's premier public university and a wellspring of innovation, UC Berkeley occupies a 1,232 acre campus with a sylvan 178-acre central core. From this home its academic community makes key contributions to the economic and social well-being of California, the nation, and beyond. Berkeley’s Canadian Studies Program is an interdisciplinary campus initiative to promote research on and instruction of Canada, including through comparative studies. This program encourages and facilitates an awareness of Canadian issues on the Berkeley campus, in nearby institutions with no Canadian Studies programs of their own, and in the wider community. The Fulbright Chair will be invited to give a public lecture and make him- or herself available to students on campus. The Fulbright Chair may also help organize a small conference in partnership with the Canadian Studies Program.
Specializations: For scholars who can advance Canadian Studies at Berkeley, with a preference for those working in the Social Sciences or Humanities.
