Call for applications: Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) Residential Fellowships Program

ad0

The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) is inviting applications for Residential Fellowships Program in the fields of arts, engineering, humanities, law, and natural, physical, and social sciences. The purpose of this program is to encourages scholars to include questions of values in their analyses, to integrate diverse disciplines, and to ask how their findings advance civilization. The Institute offers its fellows the opportunity to engage not only in analysis but also in evaluating what should be done, to analyze the world in substantive and collaborative ways, and to think through the implications of present behavior for the future of the world.

Eligibility

The Institute welcomes applications from faculty, scholars, public intellectuals, fellows from other institutes, and professional researchers in all disciplines, including the arts, engineering, the humanities, law, and the social and physical sciences with projects that are creative, innovative, or align with the intellectual orientation of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. The Institute also welcomes those who are beginning their careers with promise and have appropriate projects.

 

The Institute seeks applicants with:

  • excellent records of scholarly, artistic, or research accomplishment in their field(s);
  • projects that touch on normative, integrative, or ultimate questions, especially as they engage the Catholic intellectual tradition;
  • projects characterized by clarity of thought, coherence, and impact;
  • the ability to interact with other fellows and to engage in collegial discussions of research presentations; and
  • a willingness to contribute to a cooperative community of scholars.

Scholars from other institutions, researchers at national laboratories, fellows from other institutes, as well as faculty from Notre Dame are invited to apply.

One goal of the fellowship selection process is the creation of a diverse and collaborative community of scholars. Faculty fellowships will be awarded based on the range of applicants’ disciplines and academic ranks.

Applicants who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. There are no citizenship requirements for fellowships; non-U.S. nationals are welcome to apply.

In some instances, the Institute may seek out scholars who address an area of pressing concern to the University, the academy, or the world or scholars who work on problems and issues that would benefit from collaboration or from the rethinking of a discipline or disciplinary approach.
