Call for Ukrainian Academics at Risk Program
employment at iliauni
The Russian invasion of and ongoing aggression against Ukraine created a fatal threat for civilians, including academics. In solidarity with Ukrainian academia, Ilia State University (ISU) established the program in support of academics at risk. The program intends to support Ukrainian scholars who are under the threat by providing a safe environment for them and their family members. The ongoing war demonstrated the significance of having the expertise on Ukraine (language, politics, culture) on the one hand and unfolded the scarcity of relevant academic resources, on the other hand. We believe that Ukrainian Academics at Risk Program will contribute to the development of Ukrainian Studies in Georgia as well.
Hence, ISU is announcing 3 positions for Ukrainian academics willing to conduct lectures and engage in other academic activities at ISU in the following fields:
- Ukrainian Language;
- History and Culture of Ukraine;
- Politics and Society of Ukraine;
- Security and International Relations of Ukraine.
What Do We Offer
Three representatives of the Ukrainian universities and research institutions will receive a monthly scholarship in amount of 1000 USD and will be provided with accommodation in Tbilisi. Selected candidates will have unlimited access to ISU teaching and research facilities. Duration of the program is 3 to 6 months.
Who Can Apply
The program is open to Ukrainian citizens who:
- Hold a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree in Social Sciences or Humanities and are fluent in English;
- Are either university professors, teachers/lecturers, or researchers.
