Call for applications for Kohei Miura Professorship


Ohio University’s Chubu University Relations Committee (CRC) is now accepting applications for the 2019 Kohei Miura Visiting Professorship, named in honor of the founder of Chubu University.

Each year since 1973, Ohio University has sent a faculty member to Chubu University in Kasugai City, Japan. Kohei Miura Visiting Professors are expected to engage in an active program of scholarship that may include activities such as teaching a regular course or seminar; teaching short-term workshops; delivering lectures; giving guest presentations in classes and seminars; engaging in research activities; conducting independent study programs with students and/or professors; participating in outreach activities; and acting as consultants in areas such as library development, research and pedagogy.

The Kohei Miura Visiting Professorship allows for an OHIO faculty member to spend a semester in residence at Chubu University in Japan. The successful applicant for 2019 will be an Ohio University Group 1 faculty member who is able to be in residence at Chubu University either during the spring semester (early April through June) or the fall semester (late September through December). Round-trip transportation, housing, and a modest monthly expense reimbursement will be provided.

To submit an application for the 2019 Kohei Miura Visiting Professorship, interested faculty members should send a current curriculum vitae and cover letter, addressed to the Chubu Relations Committee, detailing their interest in the position, teaching capabilities, and current research focus relevant to this position by Friday, March 30, 2018 to:
