The following position may be available for the coming academic year,
pending funding.

 CRTL Visiting Scholar Position


 The continual infusion of new knowledge, skills, viewpoints, and
 technologies is integral to maintaining quality and relevance to
 any academic organization. Within a unit that has the expertise
 and potential of NTID's Center for Research, Teaching and
 Learning (CRTL), such stimulation is especially important to the
 promotion of collaboration and vitality. One method of fostering
 such an atmosphere is to bring in diverse scholars from outside the
 Center to collaborate with us for varying periods of time. Such
 scholars, to be referred to as CRTL Visiting Scholars (consistent
 with RIT terminology), would work closely with Center faculty and
 staff across all departments as well as with relevant groups
 outside of the CRTL. The close working relationship with Center
 members is designed to result in skill development, intellectual
 stimulation, and collaborative ties that will endure long after
 Scholars return to their former positions.


 A CRTL visiting scholar will typically be a person with long-
 standing, significant experience and credentials related to
 deafness. Such experience could be in any area relevant to the
 mission of the CRTL. The person could be from inside or outside
 the University. The experience and academic background of the
 person should be such that both the Center and the individual
 would mutually benefit from a working relationship. Level of
 support and visiting rank (where appropriate) will be
 commensurate with the Scholar's credentials.

 Process/conditions of employment

 All proposed CRTL Scholars will submit a letter of intent that
 includes a description of the work to be undertaken during the
 visiting period and a curriculum vitae or resume. Each potential
 CRTL Scholar must also identify one or more CRTL members who will
 sponsor the person and coordinate the necessary organizational
 details, such as office space, clerical/computer support, and
 schedules. The time in residence of a CRTL Scholar may vary
 from one to twelve months, and a CRTL Scholar may reside in any
 of the departments of the Center. A final summary report of
 accomplishments will be submitted to the Director of CRTL within
 one month following of the end of the visit.

 The CRTL Fellow program will follow the Academic Approval of
 Visiting Scholars Policy as accepted by the RIT Faculty Council
