The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) promotes issue-engaged, inclusive, and interdisciplinary study of questions that affect our ability to lead valuable, meaningful lives. Each year, the NDIAS convenes a diverse group of 10-15 Faculty Fellows to conduct research on projects related to its yearly research theme.
During the 2022-2023 academic year, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study is sponsoring research projects that investigate the concept of The Public from many disciplines and applications. The project will bring together humanists, scientists, social scientists, legal scholars, and artists to examine how we organize individuals, political and scientific institutions, cultural resources, and informational structures into public, private, and expert domains.
For a list of potential research topics related to the theme, please see ndias.nd.edu/fellowships/faculty.
Faculty Fellows typically have a faculty appointment at their home institution, but the fellowships are also open to independent researchers, public practitioners, postdoctoral scholars, and those who have recently received their Ph.D. (or equivalent terminal) degree. Scholars from other institutions, researchers at national laboratories, fellows from other institutes, as well as faculty from Notre Dame, are also eligible to apply. Current graduate students are eligible only if they will receive their terminal degree by August 1, 2022.
Fellows typically receive half their salary per academic year (up to $75,000), subsidized housing, a research allowance of up to $500 per semester, and a private office at the NDIAS.
All NDIAS Fellows are expected to reside in the South Bend area and to remain in residence at the University of Notre Dame during the period of their fellowship. Some preference is given to those who can join the NDIAS for the entire academic year (August - May), but fellowships for shorter periods of time may be possible.
