Crausaz Wordsworth Interdisciplinary Fellowship in Philosophy

For Cambridge University and College Teaching officers only


The aim of the Fellowship is to enable scholars developing interests in philosophical study from an interdisciplinary perspective to spend additional time exploring these. 
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 the first lecturing appointment). UTOs must apply for leave under Statute D,II,6 (b) and the period of leave granted will not be reckonable for purposes of entitlement to sabbatical leave (granted under statute D,II,5).  This is a residential fellowship and successful applicants are expected to spend their period of research leave in Cambridge.

The Fellowship has a value of £5000, which can be used by the Department/Faculty/College concerned either to pay for the 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.
