Research Visitors to Philosophy
The Department and its two centres (Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience and Centre for Philosophy and Religion) welcome applications from scholars who wish to spend time here, for example during the summer or a sabbatical leave. We also consider applications from graduate students who would like to visit for some period of time. To apply please e-mail us with a brief curriculum vitae and details of your research plans in the first instance. Thereafter applications can be made to the University to be a visiting researcher:
Some Funding Opportunities for visitors:
- The Royal Society of Edinburgh International Exchanges
- The Leverhulme Trust enables distinguished academics based overseas to spend between three and ten months inclusive at a UK university.
- The Bednarowski Trust is offering three visiting fellowships to enable philosophers in Polish Universities to visit philosophy departments in Scottish Universities during the academic year 2010-11. Visits will normally be for a minimum of six weeks, though it may be possible to vary this by arrangement. The scheme aims to enable Polish philosophers to learn more about Philosophy in the English-speaking world, and to make contact with philosophers in Aberdeen or other Scottish universities. Successful applicants will receive support towards their travel, and accommodation and a small stipend during their stay in Scotland. Study space and access to computer and library facilities will be provided.
Further details about the scheme should be obtained before applying, either from Professor Justyna Miklaszewska, Director of the Institute of Philosophy in the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, from the Trust’s website, or from the Trust’s Secretary.
