Job description

The American Institute for Philosophical and Cultural Thought (AIPCT) is pleased to announce the Foundation for the Philosophy of Creativity (FPC) Summer Dissertation Research Fellowship is now accepting applications.

The FPC Fellow must be in residence at the AIPCT in Murphysboro, IL, from June 1 until August 2, 2020, and will receive housing and $1000 per month, plus a travel stipend of $200. The FPC Fellow will carry out research on the dissertation (the idea is to finish a chapter while there). The dissertation can be in any discipline in the humanities or social sciences, so long as the topic of the research relates to theoretical ideas about creativity, broadly construed. The dissertation need not be wholly concerned with creativity, but the portion of the research carried out at AIPCT must be related to creativity. Toward the end of residency the FPC Fellow will present the research at AIPCT in a public lecture, the William S. Minor Fellowship Lecture (the 2018 dissertation lecture and other presentations sponsored by FPC can be viewed here). See the AIPCT website (www.americanphilosophy.net) for more information about the research location, and visit the FPC website (www.creativityfoundation.org) for information about the grantor.
