Job description

Philosophy Writing Residence Fellowship

The Philosophy Department at Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, invites applications for a one-semester (Fall or Spring) residency during 2017-18 for a philosopher who is completing a book manuscript. The book should be already under way and nearing completion. Preference will be given to early career applicants. The appointment as a University Research Fellow carries a stipend of $10,000. The successful candidate will have no teaching duties but will be expected to be in residence in the Philosophy Department for the duration of the fellowship. Office space and library access provided. No benefits; the Fellow must have their own health insurance.

Applications must include: (1) a letter of application, indicating which semester of 2017-18 is preferred; (2) a cv; (3) a description of the book project including both a table of contents and a work plan; (4) one completed chapter; and (5) one letter of recommendation from a philosopher who is well-acquainted with the project and can comment both on its quality and on the likelihood of its being completed during the semester in question.       

The Lehigh Philosophy Department is home to a collegial, eclectic group of active scholars who are committed to supporting and engaging with the scholarship of others. We host an international conference every fall and a renowned visiting scholar in residence for a week every spring. We also hold a weekly Philosophy Faculty Seminar each semester and will welcome the Fellow’s participation. 

Lehigh University is a premier residential research university, ranked in the top tier of national research universities.  A selective, coeducational, nondenominational, private university, Lehigh offers a distinct academic environment in four colleges to about 7000 undergraduate and graduate students from across the globe. The University is located in eastern Pennsylvania’s scenic Lehigh Valley on a campus of 6,000 acres in close proximity to both New York City and Philadelphia.  Pennsylvania requires that employees at educational institutions pass background checks.

Deadline for receipt of application: April 1, 2017. Applications will be accepted only online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/fellowship/8879. Applicants will be notified of search results by May 15, 2017.
