RILE Distinguished Visiting Professor - Race, Inequality, and Language in Education Program, AY 20-21


The Graduate School of Education at Stanford University seeks applications for the Race, Inequality, and Language in Education (RILE) Distinguished Visiting Professor Program for the 2020-2021 academic year. The School will select one faculty member to be in residence at Stanford University to join the GSE’s RILE program and be part of our collaborative and engaging community of students, staff and faculty.


The Visiting Professor will attend weekly RILE meetings with students, RILE faculty meetings, the RILE colloquia series, give one talk per quarter, and hold 4-5 hours of office hours with students per week. Additionally, the Visiting Professor will offer a series of workshops or a course.

The ideal candidate is committed to linking scholarship and practice in topics related to RILE, interested in working with students and faculty in related areas, and on partial or full sabbatical or leave from his/her/their home institution. The Visiting Professor will use the time at Stanford to further the objectives of his/her/their research that are aligned with the RILE program, explore critical content and innovative methodologies, engage deeply with the community, and collaborate on work in a context that is both receptive and supportive.


The Visiting Professor will be in residence from September 20, 2020 through June 20, 2021 (observing Stanford’s breaks and holidays). The GSE will provide up to 50% of the faculty salary (depending on the amount of sabbatical/leave offered by the home institution) and a research account of $3,000. The GSE has also identified a range of temporary housing options and will work with the finalist on a monthly housing allowance to support their needs.
