Applications are open for another edition of the Visiting Professor’s open call at Georgetown University, which will allow a professor in the areas of Political Science and International Relations to teach a chair at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, during the second semester of the academic year 2022/2023 (January to May 2023).

This is a partnership between FLAD and Georgetown University, and is open to professors from all areas within Political Science and International Relations.

FLAD decided to extend the possible themes of the chair, failing to restrict – as happened in past editions – to proposals of topics related to contemporary Portugal in the context of transatlantic relations and global politics.

The final decision of the chair program will be agreed between Georgetown University and the selected candidate.

Applicants should also monitor and collaborate with FLAD’s work, both at that University and in their relationship with washington-based institutions, including think tanks, foundations, other universities and various local contacts.


  • They must have a Doctor’s degree;
  • Have published research within his/hers academic field;
  • Have teaching experience in English.

  • Motivation letter;
  • CV in Portuguese and in English;
  • Proposal of the course syllabus in English;
  • Copy of the PhD certificate;
  • Two letters of recommendation from professionals within the academic field (research and/or teaching);
