senior visiting fellows program

The Basics

The Senior Visiting Fellows program invites philosophers of science with seniority in the profession to spend a two-term academic year working in the Center for Philosophy of Science. Senior Fellows work principally on their own research project. Because of their seniority, it is expected that they will informally mentor junior scholars also visiting in the Center.

The Senior Visiting Fellow will propose an open-call conference that will be considered for possible inclusion in the Center's activities for the end of the Fellow's year. If the Center proceeds with the conference, it will be funded by the Center and chaired by the Senior Visiting Fellow.

Senior Visiting Fellows are provided:

Senior Visiting Fellows have no other formal duties. They are expected to reside in Pittsburgh and to undertake research full time in an office in the Center for Philosophy of Science; and to participate in the life of the Center by attending and giving talks, contributing to discussion groups, etc.

Many Fellows are pleasantly surprised by the City of Pittsburgh and enjoy exploring it and the surrounding countryside.
