The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa warmly welcomes a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in an academic department or center within the College of Social Sciences to conduct research, develop partnerships, guest lecture, and potentially teach a semester course. While the area of study is open to any discipline within the Social Sciences, possible topics may include regional cooperation on issues including energy and the environment, Asia Pacific engagement, indigenous issues, ICT, health disparities, policy, and migration. In addition, the Visiting Research Chair will have opportunities to deliver public lectures, give seminar presentations, participate in conferences and related research, and otherwise contribute to the intellectual life of the University of Hawai‘i.
The University of Hawai‘i actively promotes research and teaching that crosses disciplines and departments, through a multitude of centers and institutes. The Fulbright Visiting Chair may choose to work with one of these organizations to develop personal and professional networks, access important resources, and further academic pursuit. Situated in the lush and green Mānoa Valley, the flagship campus of the University of Hawai‘i is just outside of downtown Honolulu on the island of O‘ahu. A destination of choice, students and faculty come from across the nation and the world to take advantage of UH Mānoa's unique research opportunities, diverse community, nationally-ranked Division I athletics program, and beautiful landscape. One of only a handful of universities nationwide to hold the distinction of being a land-, sea-, and space-grant institution, UH Mānoa is ranked in the top 50 public universities in research expenditures by the National Science Foundation. Our students get a great education and have a unique multicultural global experience in a Hawaiian place of learning—truly like no place else on earth.
Specializations: Social Sciences including but not limited to regional cooperation on issues including energy and the environment, Asia Pacific engagement, indigenous issues, ICT, health disparities, policy, and migration.
