Call for Applications: PPE Research Fellowships

Starting this fall semester, the Kellogg Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics will offer several research fellowships per year, mainly (but not exclusively) for PPE affiliated faculty members.

The primary goal of the PPE Research Fellowships is to support interdisciplinary research in PPE (broadly construed) and provide scholars with the opportunity to present their work on and off campus. The fellowships typically will run for one year (August 10 to August 9) and will include a research/travel budget to support scholarly work (during COVID-19, we will aim to be as flexible as possible with the use of funds in line with University restrictions). In addition, the Center will help to advance the visibility of the fellows’ research through outreach.

PPE research fellows will be selected by the PPE Stakeholders Committee based on the promise and impact of the candidates’ proposed research projects, potential for collaboration with PPE faculty, potential for external research funding, engagement of PPE students in research and teaching, and advancement of the Center’s mission more generally. The Center strongly supports principles of inclusion and diversity.

Any tenure-track or collegiate faculty member with a Ph.D. in a PPE-related field may apply for a PPE Research Fellowship. Please submit your CV and a two-page summary of your research interests and proposed research project for the fellowship period. The research summary should address the fellowship selection criteria (above) and include a brief budget.

Please submit your application by October 27, 2020 to Holly Belcher (hollymb2@nullvt.edu) and direct any questions concerning the fellowships to me (moehler@nullvt.edu).
