The Crausaz-Wordsworth Interdisciplinary Fellowship in Philosophy is for Cambridge University Teaching Officers and College Teaching Officers only.

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


The scheme is open to Cambridge University Teaching Officers and College Teaching Officers in any field, with the exception of members of the Faculty of Philosophy. Preference will be given to mid-career applicants (between five and twenty-five years since their first post-PhD 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 their 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 take part in the weekly Research Practice seminars and to lead one of these. Fellows will also be encouraged to engage in seminars at the Faculty of Philosophy and to draw benefit from discussion with colleagues there.
