Job description

The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) promotes issue-engagedinclusive, and interdisciplinary study of questions that affect our ability to lead valuable, meaningful lives. Each year, the NDIAS convenes a diverse group of 10-15 Faculty Fellows to conduct research on projects related to its yearly research theme.

During the 2021-2022 academic year, the NDIAS is sponsoring residential research projects that will deepen our understanding of resilience. This project brings together humanists, scientists, social scientists, legal scholars, and artists to consider how organisms, people, species, and social structures adapt or fail to adapt to novel challenges and the ethical implications of such adaptation.

Faculty Fellows typically have a faculty appointment at their home institution, but these fellowships are also open to independent researchers, postdoctoral scholars, and those who have recently received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree. Scholars from other institutions, researchers at national laboratories, fellows from other institutes, as well as faculty from Notre Dame, are also eligible to apply. Current graduate students are eligible only if they will receive their terminal degree by August 1, 2021.

Fellows typically receive up to half their salary per academic year (up to $75,000), subsidized housing, a research allowance of up to $500 per semester, and a private office at the NDIAS.

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. Some 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:

  1. Completed online application form;
  2. Cover letter;
  3. Curriculum vitae (no more than four pages, single-spaced);
  4. Proposal abstract (no more than 400 words);

  7. One writing sample (from applicants who have completed doctoral or other terminal degrees within the past five years);
  8. (Optional) up to two pages of non-text materials supporting the research proposal.

All 2021-2022 NDIAS Faculty Fellowship applications, including letters of reference and supporting documentation, must be received by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Monday, October 5, 2020.
