CENTRE FOR RESEARCH IN THE ARTS, SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

Crausaz Wordsworth Interdisciplinary Fellowship in Philosophy 2018-19

Please note that this scheme is intended for Cambridge University and College Teaching Officers only. 

Deadline: 12 noon GMT, Tuesday 31 October 2017.

The aim of the Fellowship is to enable scholars developing interests in philosophical study from an interdisciplinary perspective to spend additional time exploring these.

Eligibility
The scheme is open to Cambridge University Teaching Officers or College Teaching Officers in any field, with the exception of members of the Faculty of Philosophy. Preference will be given to those in mid-career (between five and twenty-five years since first lecturing appointment).

Provision
The Fellowship has a value of £5000, which can be used by the Department/Faculty/College concerned either to pay for replacement of the Fellow’s teaching for one term or, as appropriate, to alleviate teaching load over a longer period during the year of appointment. The Fellow will be an active member of the interdisciplinary research community at CRASSH and will be expected to attend the weekly seminar for CRASSH Fellows and give a presentation of work in progress. The holder will also be encouraged to engage in seminars at the Faculty of Philosophy and to draw benefit from discussion with colleagues there.
