DFI Visiting Fellowship for Junior Scholar 

The Department of Philosophy at Tilburg University invites applications for a junior visiting fellowship for the Fall of 2023 (i.e. a period of your own choice, sometime in September-December 2023).

The fellowships are intended for advanced Ph.D. students, postdocs or junior faculty (within five years after their PhD was awarded). Applicants should be keen on being an active part of a lively research community and on intellectual exchange with the members of the department at Tilburg and with other fellows. The planned work of applicants should relate to one (or more) of the research areas covered by members of TiLPS or PHC&E research groups.

TiLPS and PHC&E sustain a full calendar of research events, such as weekly seminars, work in progress meetings and other workshops and conferences. The Visiting Fellow will be hosted by a member of TiLPS or PHC&E and will be expected to actively participate in these activities.

The Visiting Fellow receives a tax-free reimbursement of up to € 1,000/month, with a maximum of € 2,500 for the total stay. This can be used to get travel and housing expenses reimbursed.

To apply, please send your application (everything in one pdf file) to no later than April 17, 2023. The applications will be reviewed by a selection committee consisting of Dr. Jimena Clavel Vazquez, Dr. Paolo Santori, and Dr. Bart Engelen. We will notify you about our decision by the end of April or beginning of May 2023. 

Your application should contain the following documents (in one pdf file, please only mention your initials, not your full first name):

  • a motivation letter (max. 2 pages), explaining how your proposed research project relates to the research strengths of the Department of Philosophy at Tilburg, and stating your preferred period of visit and preferred host(s);
