Non-stipendiary short-term (3 – month) William Paton Visiting Fellows in Global Philosophy of Religion
The mission of the John Hick Centre for Philosophy of Religion is to foster excellence in teaching and research in the philosophy of religion from a global perspective. The Centre is located in the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion and is dedicated to promote critical thinking about the metaphysical, epistemological and moral questions concerning religion, belief, and reality.
The Centre proposes to appoint 4 short-term William Paton Visiting Fellowships – 2 during the Spring 2013 (starting anytime between Jan 7th and 22nd March, 2013) and 2 during Autumn 2013 (starting on 30th Sept. 2013).
Paton Fellows must write at least one paper to be published in an internationally recognised peer-reviewed academic journal. The subject of each Fellow’s research can address any aspect of philosophy of religion but it should be from a non-western perspective. Fellows will be required to acknowledge the William Paton Trust and the John Hick Centre in any publications that arise out of the time spent at Birmingham.
The Paton Fellowship is non-stipendiary, however all travel expenses, accommodation and subsistence costs will be covered by the Fellowship for the entire period of stay.
Applicants must have a PhD in philosophy, theology or religious studies with a record of research and publications in philosophy of religion commensurate with their experience. We welcome applications from both junior and senior scholars.
