Call for Visiting Fellows

The Department of Philosophy at Tilburg University invites applications for visiting fellowships for the calendar year 2019. The fellowships are intended for advanced PhD 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 stipend of 750 Euro a month which can be used for covering travel and housing expenses, with a maximum of 2.000 Euro for the total stay. Stays in July and August are discouraged due to the summer break.


To apply, please send your application (everything in one pdf file) to tilps@tilburguniversity.nl no later than 28 January 2019. We will notify you about our decision by 15 February 2019.
The application should contain:

  • a motivation letter no longer than 2 pages, explaining how the proposed research relates with one of the research strengths at Tilburg University;
  • a CV;
  • a project outline of no more than 1000 words;
  • PhD students should include at least one letter of recommendation from their supervisor.
