Salzburg Faculty Fellows Program

A key feature of the Salzburg Semester has been CAS faculty journeying to Salzburg and offering courses that our undergrads can take during their semester abroad. Those interested in being a Salzburg Faculty Fellow for a semester will have their teaching in Salzburg counted in-load.

Application for spring 2024 Salzburg Faculty Fellow position can be found here; deadline is October 22, 2021.

All applications will be evaluated by the Salzburg Advisory Board. In coordination with the Salzubrg Director, Katie Baber, this faculty group will make its recommendation to Interim Dean Steve Wuhs.

Below are details regarding the Salzburg Faculty Fellows Program:

Semester Semester Teaching

Faculty Fellows will teach two blocks of the Salzburg Semester in Fall or Spring. Teaching will commence 4-5 weeks after the start of the University of Redlands semester. It will cover 8 weeks, including a block (4 weeks) prior to the Salzburg Fall or Spring Break and another block (4 weeks) after the break. Faculty Fellows should propose teaching that ideally takes advantage of the Austrian, European, international, or global nature of the Salzburg Program and/or its nature as an interdisciplinary program in the arts and humanities.

Faculty Fellow Compensation and Covered Expenses

  • Faculty Fellows will receive their regular University of Redlands pay while they are teaching in Salzburg.
  • Travel directly to and from Salzburg, Austria, will be covered for the Faculty Fellow.
  • An apartment for up to 11 weeks in Salzburgwill be provided by the program. The apartment will be a studio or 1 bedroom suitable for the Fellow and a partner. The Salzburg Director can assist with finding housing for families but securing such housing beyond the cost of the studio apartment will be the Fellow’s responsibility.
  • Weekend meal stipends will be provided for up to 7 weeks.
  • The Faculty Fellow is invited (but not required) to participate in one of the two longer group excursions, one of which takes place immediately before the beginning of their course and the other which occurs in the second half of their course.

Teaching Obligation

During the semester in which a Faculty Fellow offers a Salzburg course, they will be considered to have a 2-course semester. This means that the faculty fellow will need to offer 3 courses in their non-Salzburg semester and 1 course during the May term. For example, if teaching in the Spring Salzburg Semester, the faculty member’s load would be 3-2-1 (fall-spring-May term) for the academic year.

The Dean’s Office will provide adjunct course funding to the department or program of the Faculty Fellow selected to offer a Salzburg Semester course. The funding will be sufficient to cover two courses at the standard adjunct rate.

It is also expected that the Faculty Fellow will be willing to share their activities abroad with other faculty and staff through the Salzburg Symposium and/or the Faculty Forum. Former fellows may also be asked to serve on the Salzburg Advisory Board.

Questions about applying?

Anyone interested in applying to be a faculty fellow is encouraged to consult with the Salzburg Director, Katie Baber, as well as former faculty fellows and Austrian faculty members.
