Visiting Professors are based at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Cogut Professors teach one undergraduate course on Latin America per semester, meet with undergraduate and graduate students, and give presentations on campus through CLACS or affiliated units. The Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship provides a salary, an optional medical insurance package, a modest research fund, and administrative assistance. Appointments are possible for one or two semesters. Deadline is November 1st. Apply through Interfolio.
