The Erasmus Institute is an international Catholic center for advanced studies at the University of Notre Dame offering residential fellowships at the postdoctoral level. It fosters mainstream academic research that draws primarily upon the Catholic intellectual and cultural heritage, with the goal of building bridges between the often separate worlds of Catholic thought and secular scholarship. Applications are encouraged from scholars without regard to their religious belief. The residential fellowships are designed to support the research and writing of a significant book.
The Erasmus Institute invites applications from academics who by their faith and/or scholarship seek to study, apply, and contribute to Catholic intellectual traditions. In 2006-07, the Institute will admit six postdoctoral scholars to our center on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Postdoctoral fellows will receive $35,000 plus benefits. They will be required to teach one undergraduate course during the academic year, preferably during the spring term.
The application deadline is January 27, 2006.
