The MLML Visiting Scientist position was established in 1984 by a resolution of the MLML Governing Board to enhance the opportunity for professors from the seven MLML consortium campuses (SJSU, CSU East Bay, CSU SF, CSU Sac, CSU Stanislaus, CSU Fresno, CSU Monterey Bay) to conduct research and collaborate with the MLML faculty and students during an academic year, in-residence appointment. Employment is contingent upon proof of eligibility to work in the United States. Faculty from consortium campuses will be given preference in selection.

A Ph.D. is required.  Applicants should be scientists in good standing and have research interests (to be pursued independently or in cooperation with specific faculty member) that are of overall interest to the MLML faculty and student body. In lieu of research, the applicant may propose teaching courses generally not offered at MLML but that would be of value to the MLML student body.  Applicants should have awareness of and sensitivity to the educational goals of a multicultural population as might have been gained in cross-cultural study, training, teaching and other comparable experience. Applicants are encouraged to contact appropriate MLML faculty members to discuss possible participation at the Labs.

Responsibilities include ability to teach effectively and perform research in the applicant’s area of expertise. Candidate will be expected to coordinate the weekly seminar series with assistance from the faculty and students. Candidate must address the needs of a student population of great diversity – in age, cultural background, ethnicity, primary language and academic preparation – through course materials, teaching strategies and advisement. Candidates should have proven record of peer-reviewed research publications.
