Visiting Research Professorships/Faculty Fellowships

The Center for Ethics and Public Affairs at the Murphy Institute at Tulane University invites applications for three Faculty Fellowships/Visiting Research Professorships for the 2020-2021 academic year.

These fellowships are available to support outstanding faculty whose teaching and research focus on ethics, political philosophy, moral psychology, agency and responsibility, philosophy of law, political theory, or questions of moral choice in areas such as, but not restricted to, business, government, law, economics, and medicine.

While fellows will participate in conferences and seminars organized by the Murphy Institute, they will be expected to devote most of their time to conducting their own research.   Faculty Fellows are appointed as Visiting Research Professors at Tulane University's Murphy Institute,  receive a salary of 65,500 USD, and are eligible for Tulane University health insurance. 

The application deadline is December 30, 2019. 


Applicants must hold a doctorate in philosophy, political theory, or a related discipline at the time of application.  Applicants must also hold a full-time college or university appointment at the time of application. Faculty Fellowships are open to full-time faculty at all ranks.   

Application Instructions:

Applicants must apply via Interfolio here.  Application is free for all applicants. 

Required application materials include the curriculum vitae, a project description of approximately 1500 words, accompanied by a one-page bibliography, a scholarly paper, and two confidential letters of recommendation. 

Please contact Margaret Keenan at [email protected] with any questions about the application process.
