Job description

The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) promotes issue-engaged, inclusive, and interdisciplinary study of questions that affect our ability to lead valuable, meaningful lives. Each year, the NDIAS convenes a diverse group of 8-10 Faculty Fellows to conduct research on projects related to its yearly research theme.

During the 2023-2024 academic year, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study is sponsoring residential research projects that investigate The Long Run.

Practical decision-making, ethical evaluation, scientific modeling, and cultural meaning-making all increasingly push us to consider causes that extend further and further into the past and consequences that extend further and further into the future. The Long Run Project will bring together humanists, scientists, social scientists, policy scholars, and artists to consider how we understand, manage, and respond to events that lie in the distant future or past, or challenges that unfold over long periods of time.

Faculty Fellows typically have a faculty appointment at their home institution, but the Fellowships are also open to independent researchers, public practitioners, postdoctoral scholars, those who have recently received their Ph.D. (or equivalent terminal) degree, those who are pursuing the creative arts, and faculty from Notre Dame. Scholars from outside the U.S. are welcome to apply–there are no citizenship requirements for these fellowships. Current graduate students are eligible to apply only if they will receive their terminal degree by August 1, 2023.

Faculty Fellows receive half their base salary per academic year (up to $75,000), a housing subsidy (for those who currently reside outside of the South Bend area), a research allowance of $500 per semester, and a private office at the NDIAS. Fellows' home institutions provide the remainder of their salaries as well as all benefits, including health insurance.

All NDIAS Fellows are expected to reside in the South Bend area and to remain in residence at the University of Notre Dame during the period of their fellowship (except for vacation periods, holidays, and University breaks). Preference is given to those who can join the NDIAS for the entire academic year (August - May), but fellowships for shorter periods of time may be possible.

Applications must be submitted through Interfolio and should include the following:

Cover letter

Curriculum vitae (no more than four pages, single-spaced)

Proposal abstract (no more than 400 words)

Fellowship research proposal (no more than six pages double-spaced; research proposals may include a works-cited or bibliography page, which does not count toward the 6-page limit). In the research proposal, applicants should provide an explanation of the project they intend to pursue at the NDIAS, including:

  • How the proposed research aligns with the research theme and mission of the Institute (see ndias.nd.edu/about);
  • Preliminary objectives for the research to be conducted (i.e., whether the research might result in a book, journal article, art work, etc.);
  • The proposed work plan (including what research or work has already been accomplished, what will be done during the fellowship period, the methodology to be employed, and the organization of the scholarly project, book, or other work).

A Research Letter of Reference that addresses the strength and promise of the applicant’s proposed research project and its fit with the 2023-2024 theme of The Long Run. This letter should come from a colleague, mentor, or other suitable referee for the research area.

An Interdisciplinary Community Letter of Reference that addresses one or more of the questions below. This letter should come from a colleague that you have worked with in a department, center, institute, or university context.

  • Can you describe an experience where the applicant collaborated to help another researcher improve a project?
  • What experience does the applicant have engaging with faculty from backgrounds different from their own? What skills do they bring to such collaboration? What skills might they work to grow in?
  • Do you recommend this candidate for a highly collaborative, inclusive, interdisciplinary fellowship program like the NDIAS fellowship?

(Optional) Up to two pages of non-text materials supporting the research proposal.

Note: applicants are responsible for letting their letter writers know which type of letter to write and the instructions provided above.

All 2023-2024 NDIAS Faculty Fellowship applications, including letters of reference and supporting documentation, must be received by 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, October 3, 2022.
