The Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center (SSPC) at Duquesne University is excited to welcome applications from distinguished scholars to be its inaugural Visiting Phenomenology Scholar in Spring 2016.

At Duquesne, phenomenology has been pursued in a signal way through the SSPC, which has for over three decades played a significant role in the development of phenomenological research and teaching in North America, Europe, and Africa. At Duquesne, phenomenology has been a major focus in the fields of philosophy and psychology, and it has also been pursued in fields of nursing, music, education, theology, and communication and rhetorical studies.

The scholar will be appointed for a maximum of one semester and a minimum of six weeks of a semester, with a stipend of $15,000. Relocation and living expenses (on-campus apartment), as well as a modest discretionary account (e.g. books or conference travel) will also be provided. The scholar will be provided with on-campus office space, an e-mail account, and all library privileges. The Scholar may audit courses if desired. Other responsibilities include teaching a seminar on a topic of scholar’s choosing for faculty and graduate students (the latter can take it for credit), offering one public lecture, and holding limited weekly office hours for consultation by students and faculty.
The Scholar will have access to the educational and research opportunities and resources at Duquesne University, as well as the University community, who will be able to learn from the scholar’s research and insights. To apply:
