Faculty Fellowships 2020/21

The Institute for Advanced Study at CEU (IAS CEU) is pleased to announce its annual special CEU Faculty Fellowship (CFF) for the academic year 2020-21. The Institute seeks to welcome one senior or advanced junior faculty member, for either the Fall or the Winter semester, offering the participation in the Institute’s academic and social life and space to withdraw for the duration of one term from some of the usual departmental routine and teaching. IAS CEU, like similar institutions worldwide, invites scholars from all over the world to pursue their own research in relative peace for extended periods of time. At the same time, the Institute aims to build a lively, multidisciplinary intellectual community, which encourages new perspectives of inquiry and scholarship. 

 CEU Faculty Fellows will be able to spend time on their research and writing projects alongside an international cohort of Fellows. In turn, CEU Faculty Fellows are encouraged to build synergies and intellectual engagements with the Institute, their department and the University at large. 

 As all other IAS Fellows, CF Fellows participate in the weekly Wednesday Fellows’ seminar and lunch, their only formal commitment, and are welcome to join in other academic, intellectual and social activities of the Institute.

 The CFF consists of a 4-credit teaching reduction during the semester of the fellowship. CF Fellows may opt to work for the duration of their fellowship on the premises of IAS on campus. Please note that applicants must obtain the endorsement of their department heads. Please turn to the Director of IAS if you would like to discuss your potential application.

 The Fall semester at IAS CEU runs from September 15, 2020 to December 31,2020 the Winter semester runs from January 4 to June 30, 2021. CF Fellows are expected to be in residence for the duration of the fellowship.
