TiLPS Visiting Fellowships for Senior Scholars
The Tilburg Center for Moral Philosophy, Epistemology and Philosophy of Science (TiLPS) invites applications for senior visiting fellowships for the academic year 2020-21. The fellowships are intended for advanced scholars in epistemology and/or philosophy of science broadly understood (we also have junior fellowships intended for Ph.D. students, postdocs or junior faculty; see our website for more information).
Applicants are invited to dedicate their time to doing research (and acknowledge the support of the Center in any relevant publication or lecture). To ensure the fellowship is mutually beneficial, they should be keen on being an active part of a lively research community and on intellectual exchange with the resident fellows at Tilburg, especially those who work in epistemology and/or philosophy of science. The planned work of the candidates should relate to one (or more) of their research areas; we can imagine that someone who is working in the domains of philosophy of mind or cognitive science would be a good fit as well. TiLPS sustains a full calendar of research events, such as regular seminars, workshops and conferences. The visiting fellows would benefit from active participation in these activities. We consider it to be of added value when the candidate is willing to provide a masterclass for our master-students about their work.
The Visiting Fellow receives a reimbursement of travel expenses and € 1,500 / month for covering housing expenses, based on receipts, with a maximum of € 6,500 for the total stay. Stays in July and August are strongly discouraged due to the summer break, January is usually also not ideal.
To apply, please send your application (everything in one pdf file) to email@example.com no later than 25th of April. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee consisting of Matteo Colombo, Caroline Harnacke, Maureen Sie, and Sander Verhaegh. The criteria for evaluation are: the academic merit of the proposal, fit with existing research projects at the center and the academic strength of the candidate. We will notify you about our decision by end of May.
Your application should contain (in one pdf file):
(1) A cover letter including personal details, a specification of the preferred period of fellowship, and a description of the ways the candidate intends to collaborate with members of TiLPS;
(2) curriculum vitae, including list of publications;
(3) a proposal for a focused research project in epistemology and/or philosophy of science to be undertaken during the term of the Fellowship (500-1000 words).
For further information, please contact one of the members of the selection committee. Please also feel free to contact those whom you would be interested in working with.
