(see also Postdoctoral Fellowship Program)

The Basics

Visiting the Center for a term or a two-term academic year is easily done through the Visiting Fellows Program and we encourage all interested philosophers of science to apply.

 
Visiting Fellows are provided:

• A centrally located office on the 8th floor of the Cathedral of Learning, an international educational landmark; a computer (Windows or Mac) with a standard suite of software, if one is needed; library privileges in Hillman Library, whose Archives of Scientific Philosophy houses papers of many leading, modern philosophers of science; on-line services, including email and access to electronic journals; and some minimal office support.

• A full calendar of talks, workshops, conferences and other activities; access (with instructor permission) to graduate seminars taught in the Departments of Philosophy and History and Philosophy of Science; and the company of other Visiting Fellows, Resident Fellows in many departments of the University of Pittsburgh, and Center Associates drawn from other universities in the Pittsburgh area.

• A stimulating and friendly environment in which to hear about philosophy of science, to talk about philosophy of science, to think about philosophy and to create philosophy of science.

• A supplementary stipend of $1200-$1400
per month to help defray the costs of temporary relocation.

Visiting Fellows have no formal duties. They are expected to pursue their own research; to give a lunchtime talk; to participate in the intellectual life of the Center by attending talks and discussions; to reside in Pittsburgh; and to make daily use of their offices. Many Fellows are pleasantly surprised by the city of Pittsburgh and enjoy exploring it and the surrounding countryside.
