Visiting Fellowship

Visiting Humanities Fellowships, 2017-2018

Applications are invited for Visiting Humanities Fellowships, tenable at the University of Windsor in the 2016-2017 academic year. Scholars with research projects in traditional humanities disciplines or in theoretical, historical or philosophical aspects of the sciences, social sciences, arts and professional studies are invited to apply.

Individuals engaged in interdisciplinary research are particularly encouraged to apply. The Fellowship will appeal to sabbaticants and those holding research grants, including Post-doctoral awards. Applicants must hold a doctorate or the equivalent in experience, research and publications. International applications are encouraged. Visa documents, if required, are the responsibility of the applicant.

The Fellowship is tenable at the University of Windsor for a period of four months to one year. No stipend is attached to the Fellowship. The Humanities Research Group will provide office space, university affiliation, library privileges and assist Fellows in establishing contacts with individuals, groups, libraries and institutions in the Southwestern Ontario/Michigan region. Fellows are expected to work in residence at the HRG for the duration of the award and to deliver a public presentation on their research.

There is no application form. Letters of application should include a rationale for working with the HRG, a curriculum vitae, one page abstract, and a detailed description of the research project. Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to the HRG before the deadline. Incomplete applications cannot be considered.
