Harvard Radcliffe Institute engages faculty from across the University and beyond to help shape the Institute’s intellectual life and advance its mission, and it recruits outstanding new faculty to all Harvard schools. 

Radcliffe Professors

Radcliffe Professorships enhance Harvard’s faculty by attracting outstanding and diverse scholars across all schools, disciplines, and career stages. Radcliffe Professors—newly recruited Harvard faculty members with joint appointments at Radcliffe and their home school—benefit from protected time to pursue their scholarship as Radcliffe fellows and members of Radcliffe’s unique interdisciplinary community.

As Institute leaders, they engage researchers, students, and the public at the frontiers of knowledge in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, and they build collaborations across Harvard and around the world.
