Female Tenure Track Faculty Funding Opportunit​y

Please consider the following funding opportunity for a new female tenure track professorship position:

HenryLuce Foundation, Clare Boothe Luce Program (CBL)
$500,000 over five years
Abstract: The Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Program strives to increase the participation of women in the sciences and engineering at every level of higher education and to serve as a catalyst for colleges and universities to be proactive in their own efforts toward this goal. The program is intended “to encourage women to enter, study, graduate, and teach” in fields where there have been various obstacles, professional and personal, to their advancement. All physical and life sciences, mathematics, computer science and all areas of engineering are included, with preference to areas where the dearth of women is greatest. Medical science is excluded and funds may not be used for travel or study abroad.
  • Thirteen institutions were specifically named in Mrs. Luce’s will to receive annual grants from the CBL Program in perpetuity. Beyond these, the Selection Committee invites other colleges and universities to submit proposals for grants.
  • The candidate should not be a member of the institution’s existing faculty and will normally be hired at the level of assistant or associate professor.
Application due: 03 Mar 2014
