2015/16 Visiting Fellowships Scheme at University of Leeds

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 2015-16.

Visiting Fellows will be provided with full library and information
systems access, and with office space where possible. There are no
formal duties. Fellows will be expected to pursue their research and to
participate in seminars, reading groups, and other aspects of the
research life of one or more of the Research Centres affiliated with the
- 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. 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 School expects to be able to appoint between three and six Visiting
Fellows for 2015-16. The fellowships are non-stipendiary. 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

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 Manager, Louise Hawksworth (l.hawksworth@leeds.ac.uk).

Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis, with an initial
review of applications in early April 2015. For consideration in that
review, applications should be received by Monday, 30 March.
