Visiting Faculty Fellowships

All available visiting faculty fellowships have been awarded for the 2019-2020 academic year.


The purpose of QTM's fellowship is flexible; our only requirement is that each faculty fellow support quantitative, empirical, or theoretical work in some fashion. Potential fellow activities include, but are not limited to, engaging in quantitatively oriented research, delivering lectures to faculty and students, or participating in QTM workshops and speaking events. QTM seeks faculty fellows who will promote quantitative literacy at Emory, as well as enrich the synthesis of quantitative theory and social sciences our department has fostered. 


Each fellow is provided with furnished housing (or a housing stipend), complimentary travel to Emory, and a monthly stipend of $3,500 for living expenses. Please note, due to space constraints, office space most be secured with the partner hosting department.


The duration of the fellowship is flexible. Fellows are invited to be in residence for up to one semester during the fall, spring, or summer. Non-continuous visits are also welcome. Shorter visits, such as two weeks, are also permissible.


Tenure-track faculty, tenured faculty, and post-doctoral associates from an institution other than Emory are eligible to apply. This fellowship is also open to other individuals who hold a PhD but may not maintain a faculty position at a university. Candidates may apply directly, though each candidate must be nominated by an Emory department or program prior to submitting an application. QTM offers up to two visiting faculty fellowships per semester. 


Please submit application materials through the online application portal, which will open on November 5, 2019. Application packets must include the following items:
