Thanks to the generous support of the Templeton Religion Trust and other donors, in 2023 Heterodox Academy (HxA) launched the Center for Academic Pluralism (CAP), an arm of HxA whose mission is to explore the theoretical and empirical foundations for pluralism in higher institutions of research and education, and share our findings with scholars, opinion leaders, and lay public around the world.
The scope of questions to address concerning pluralism in academia is vast. At the center of CAP’s activities is the work of its Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellows. We are excited to recruit a cohort of Fellows for the 2024-2025 academic year. Fellows will be expected to:
Fellows appointed for a full-time nine-month Faculty Fellowship will receive an award of $100,000 that can be used for course buyouts or to supplement a Fellow’s existing salaries; however, this award cannot be used for fringe benefits, which should continue to be supported by the Fellow’s home institution. Fellows will also receive office space in CAP’s office in Manhattan for their use and a budget for the purchase of research materials.
For those unable to commit to a full nine-month appointment, semester-long and shorter appointments will be considered, with the award amount prorated accordingly. Applicants should state any such preference in their cover letter.
In order to apply for a CAP Faculty Fellowship, applicants must hold a tenured, emeritus, tenure-track, or otherwise permanent position at an accredited institution of higher education or a well-established research institution such as a think tank (e.g, Brookings Institute, Hoover Institution, AEI, etc.), and be a member of HxA—if you are not yet a member, we invite you to join.
To apply, applicants should assemble the following:
Please submit these materials using the online form.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning December 1, 2023, with fellowship offers anticipated no later than March 31, 2024.
