Visiting Faculty Fellowships

PURPOSE

The purpose of QTM's fellowship is flexible; our only requirement is that each faculty fellow support quantitative, empirical, or theoretical work in some fashion. Potential fellow activities include, but are not limited to, engaging in quantitatively oriented research, delivering lectures to faculty and students, or participating in QTM workshops and speaking events. The Institute seeks faculty fellows who will promote quantitative literacy at Emory, as well as enrich the synthesis of quantitative theory and social sciences our department has fostered. 


BENEFITS

Each fellow is provided with free furnished housing, complimentary travel to Emory, and a monthly stipend of $3,500 for living expenses. Please note, due to space constraints, office space at QTM is not guaranteed.


DURATION

The duration of the fellowship is flexible. Fellows are invited to be in residence for up to one semester during the fall, spring, or summer. Non-continuous visits are also welcome. Shorter visits, such as two weeks, are also permissible.


ELIGIBILITY

Tenure-track faculty, tenured faculty, and post-doctoral associates from an institution outside of Emory are eligible to apply. This fellowship is open to other individuals who hold a PhD but may not maintain a faculty position at a university. Candidates may apply directly, though each candidate must be nominated by an Emory department or program prior to submitting an application. QTM offers up to two visiting faculty fellowships per semester. 


APPLICATION

Please submit all application materials to IQTM@emory.edu and include “Faculty Fellowships” in the subject and your full name in the subject line. Application packets must include the following items:
  • Current Curriculum Vita
  • Statement of purpose for the visit
  • Nomination letter written by a faculty member or department at Emory University, which must be sent by the writer of the letter

DEADLINE

QTM will start accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year in October 2017 and will continue to review applications until the fellowships are filled.
