Visiting Fellowships 2020 at the Department of Philosophy at Tilburg:

The Department of Philosophy at Tilburg University invites applications for visiting fellowships for the calendar year 2020. The fellowships are intended for advanced Ph.D. students, postdocs or junior faculty.

Applicants should be keen on being an active part of a lively research community and on intellectual exchange with the resident fellows at Tilburg. The planned work of the candidates 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 regular seminars, workshops and conferences. The visiting fellows are expected to actively participate in these activities.

The Visiting Fellows receive a tax-free reimbursement of € 750 / month, which can be used for covering travel and housing expenses, with a maximum of € 2.000 for the total stay.

Stays in July and August are strongly discouraged due to the summer break.
