Doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and scholars working on questions related to science and religion, at Harvard or beyond, are eligible to apply for research associate status with the Science, Religion and Culture program. Research associates carry out their own research in connection with the program’s intellectual life. They have access to leadership and professional development opportunities, peer support, and a broad collaborative community doing work at the nexus of multiple fields. Though candidates may come from any discipline, ideal associates have an expressed background in science studies and/or religious studies broadly conceived. Research associates are required to present research of their choosing at the SRC year-end symposium.
Applications for a renewable two-year term are considered twice a year.
Fall applications for the 2016–2017 Research Associate Program are due September 12, 2016. Spring applications are due February 1, 2017.
