Call for Seed Fellowship Applications

We invite interested scholars for short visits to the New Directions in the Philosophy of Cosmology research group, at either Western University, McGill, or UC Irvine. Visits can be for a range of durations, from a few days up to a few weeks. We offer seed fellowships to help defray expenses, as well as office space and an active intellectual community.  We look forward to having visitors at different career stages and from a variety of fields.

Potential visitors should send a brief (one page) letter of interest, explaining their current academic status, research focus, and nature of interest in our project.  The letter should also indicate the date of the prospective visit, what activities would be conducted with the group, and the estimated cost of a flight. The letter should also indicate whether the visitor would like to apply for a seed fellowship, and the expected amount of funding (up to a maximum of $5000).  We will request further information for fellowship applications, possibly including letters of reference for junior candidates, in order to evaluate the proposal.

We especially encourage applications from women and underrepresented minorities.  Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling basis.  The grant concludes in December 2020 and all expenses must be incurred before then.
