Apply for a CASBS Fellowship
The Center offers a residential fellowship program for scholars working in a diverse range of disciplines that contribute to advancing research and thinking in social science. Fellows represent the core social and behavioral sciences (anthropology, economics, history, political science, psychology, and sociology) but also the humanities, education, linguistics, communications, and the biological, natural, health, and computer sciences. We are pleased to partner with several entities to provide funding for some residential fellowships. For 2020-21, Chinese University of Hong Kong, National University of Singapore, Presence-CASBS, and Stanford-Taiwan Social Science fellowships will be offered through CASBS.
CASBS is a collaborative environment that fosters the serendipity arising from unexpected intellectual encounters. We believe that cross-disciplinary interactions lead to beneficial transformations in thinking and research. We seek fellows who will be influential with, and open to influence by, their colleagues in the diverse multidisciplinary cohort we assemble for a given year.
The ideal candidate for a CASBS fellowship is a highly accomplished academic or thinker (relative to career stage).
Has a PhD, professional degree (e.g., JD, MD), an equivalent foreign degree, or has achieved an equivalent level of professional reputation.
Is three to four years past the doctorate or equivalent degree (CASBS does not offer post-doctoral fellowships).
Is an academic faculty member—or an independent researcher—who exhibits a high level of achievement (adjusted for rank), including a strong record of research publications.
Communicates clearly in English.
Is someone who is very interested in participating in regular interdisciplinary conversations.
Is willing to commit to being in residence for the course of the fellowship year without conflicting commitments.
Although excellence in both research and accomplishments continues to be a necessary qualification for successful fellowship applicants, it is not a sufficient qualification. We seek fellows who will be both influential with, and open to influence by, their colleagues in the diverse multidisciplinary cohort we assemble for a given year. The primary focus of the fellowship year is on reflection and writing, but we expect the work to be informed and transformed by the fellowship experience as a result of interactions with other fellows.
We encourage applications from minorities, women, international scholars, and scholars from a wide variety of colleges and universities.
