Postdoctoral and Visiting Fellows
Each year the Centre offers one full year, or two one semester, Visiting Fellowships (non stipendiary) with a provision for library privileges. Visiting Fellows contribute to the intellectual life of the Centre community. Accordingly, they are encouraged to offer a public lecture or reading course on their research projects, and to participate in the activities of the Centre. These fellowships are intended primarily for individuals currently teaching or affiliated with an academic institution, though independent scholars may also apply. Faculty Fellowships are awarded at the Assistant, Associate, and full Professor ranks.
