The Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a new month-long Summer Archival Fellowship supporting a visit in the Center and research at the Archives of Scientific Philosophy.
The Summer Archival Fellowship is available for June, July, or August 2021.
The Summer Archival Fellow will be given an office at the Center and will receive a $1,500 stipend.
Summer Archival Fellows must have completed their PhDs.
The Archival Fellowship is not meant to fund general projects in philosophy of science at the Center for Philosophy of Science. It is meant to fund research on the archival materials in the Archives of Scientific Philosophy, and only projects related to these will be considered. The Center is also interested in researchers who would be willing to write archival notes about the documents reviewed during their research and make them accessible on a public wiki.
While we currently have every reason to believe the Archival Fellow will be able to safely conduct research for summer of 2021, we must acknowledge that the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic may ultimately require the cancellation or postponement of this position.
Please apply by March 15, 2021 via The University of Pittsburgh’s job site.
The following materials will need to be included with your application:
(1) A cover letter that indicates a Summer Archival Fellowship is sought and describes: the month of proposed residence in the Center; note previous fellowships at the Center
(2) A description of the research to be undertaken at the Archives of Scientific Philosophy during residence (1500 words)
(3) A curriculum vitae
(4) A letter of recommendation sent directly to Katie Labuda (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We particularly welcome submissions from members of underrepresented groups in philosophy of science.
