The Center for Values and Social Policy at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Department of Philosophy invites applications for Visiting Fellows for the 2016-17 academic year. The Center’s Visiting Fellows program is aimed at faculty working in the area of applied normative philosophy broadly understood who will be on paid leave from their home institution for one or both semesters during the 2016-17 academic year or who are retired and who would like to spend between approximately two and eight weeks during that time in residence at the Center. Visiting Fellows will spend most of their time at the Center conducting research but will also be expected to give a talk or two (depending on the length of their stay) and to do a few guest presentations in courses being offered by the Department. The Center can offer Visiting Fellows office space, library privileges, a $1,500 stipend and assistance with transportation costs, along with collegial engagement with a large and vibrant community of faculty and graduate students with interests in applied issues in moral, social, political, and legal philosophy.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, description of their research project (1500 words or fewer) and a recent writing sample to Boonin and have two confidential letters of recommendation sent to that address as well.
All materials should be received by December 11, 2015. Questions should also be directed to Boonin.
