Eligibility Criteria: The Institute currently runs two types of fellowship:
The Collaborative Visiting Fellowship scheme for 2018-19 is open to applicants who hold an academic position in a non-UK institution for the purpose of supporting philosophical research in the UK. Collaborative visiting positions come with a stipend of £1500/month, for up to 3 months, reimbursable against travel and accommodation costs during the course of the fellowship. While a fellow in the IP applicants would be expected to contribute to the intellectual environment of the Institute and work in collaboration with philosophers based in the UK.
Collaborative Fellowships are open to applicants from non-UK institutions.
Non-stipendiary Fellows are visitors to the Institute from the UK or overseas who spend a significant period of time at the Institute (usually between 3 and 6 months) on their own research. It is also possible for visitors to come for shorter periods, or ask for an extension after 6 months (after review). Visiting Fellows are provided with office space, access to computing and printing facilities and library access. Fellows are expected to make a contribution to the Institute’s programme of events during their stay. Fellows are usually members of other academic departments or postdoctoral researchers. Doctoral students interested in working in close collaboration with one of the Centres based at the IP can also apply.
These fellowships can be applied for all year round, allowing at least two months before the start date of the intended visit.?
Application Procedure: Applications should consist of:
(i) A cover letter, which outlines the proposed duration and timing of your stay and a plan for collaborative activities that justifies holding the fellowship at the IP (e.g. giving talks across the UK; organising workshops / conferences with the IP and other UK departments; supervising postgraduate students; contributing to impact activities; participating in an existing research project based in the UK; preparing an application involving UK-philosophy departments).
(ii) A short curriculum vitae (no more than 3 pages).
