Visiting Faculty

Every year, around a hundred researchers and professors from around the world come to conduct their research and teach at Sciences Po. During their stay, they are fully integrated into our university’s research activities.
A diverse array of calls for applications are open to faculty from all disciplines and all continents. Some calls are only open to professors from partner universities or pre-identified regions of the world.
Visiting professors are fully integrated into Sciences Po’s academic and scientific activities. They are expected to teach one full course (usually 12 sessions of 2 hours each, spread over 12 weeks) per semester. They are also expected to contribute actively to the research community they will join, and to deliver at least one academic lecture or seminar presentation during their stay.
Visiting faculty have access to a workstation on campus, to the Sciences Po library and other services offered by the university, as well as to Sciences Po's programme of research activities and events, particularly those of the research entity that is hosting them. Conditions, including financial terms, may vary from one programme to another; interested applicants are invited to refer to the details of each call for applications.
