Each year, faculty members are invited to submit scholarly and creative proposals for consideration by the Center for Advanced Study’s permanent professors. Faculty members with winning proposals are appointed associates (tenured) or fellows (untenured) and are awarded one semester of release time to pursue their projects in the coming year.
In accordance with the center’s mission, these appointments provide an incentive to pursue the highest level of scholarly achievement and provide faculty members an opportunity to explore new ideas and demonstrate early results.
Applications for 2016-17 are due Oct. 4 and may be made online. Letters of support are due Oct.18. For more information, contact deputy director Masumi Iriye at email@example.com. Current research appointments and faculty members’ projects are online.
