PRHS Visiting Fellowships Scheme 2017/18

The School of Philosophy, Religion, and History of Science at University of Leeds invites applications to its Non-Stipendiary Visiting Fellowships scheme for the academic year 2017-18.

Scheme information
Visiting fellows will be provided with full library and information systems access, and office space where possible. There are no formal duties. Fellows will be expected to pursue their research and participate in seminars, reading groups, and other aspects of the research life of one or more of the research centres affiliated with the school:

  • Centre for History and Philosophy of Science;
  • Centre for Metaphysics and Mind;
  • Centre for Ethics and Metaethics;
  • Centre for Aesthetics;
  • Centre for Philosophy of Religion; and
  • Centre for Religion and Public Life

Fellowship periods can be from a couple of months to one year. The fellowships are non-stipendiary. Junior and senior applicants are equally welcome, though applicants must hold a PhD. Proposed research projects should clearly mesh with the research interests of members of one or more of the above research centres. The fellows will be helped to identify potential sources of funding for workshops or other events they might want to organize during their fellowship at Leeds. 

To apply, please send (or arrange to have sent):

  • a CV;
  • a letter indicating (a) the research project you would pursue during the fellowship period, and (b) your preferred start and end dates; and
  • a letter of reference

to the school’s Research Support Officer, Isobel Lister.

Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis, with an initial review of applications in early April 2017. To guarantee consideration in that review, applications should be received by Monday, 3 April.
