Join us for an information session on applying for an IAS Faculty Fellowship for 2015-16. Up to twelve faculty fellows are selected annually to spend a semester in residence at the Institute, where they can benefit from the community of scholars and share their work across disciplines. Each faculty fellow is provided with private workspace and a computer in the IAS’s offices in Northrop. Fellows are required to attend the weekly Residential Fellows lunches, where fellows share their work in progress. Fellows are expected to participate in other activities of the Institute, including attendance at events. More information about the faculty fellowship program.

At this session we will answer questions about the Faculty Fellowship program, discuss what constitutes a good application, demonstrate the online application system, and answer your questions. Beverages will be provided — please feel free to bring your lunch.

    Hi Tiefeng,
    I think it depends on how you are looking at your possible time at the IAS. If you just want time away from teaching to hunker down in front of your computer, then probably not. If you are at a point in your research where you want to bounce ideas off others, particularly others who are in other disciplines who may respond with questions that could deepen and complicate your work — then yes. The real value in the IAS fellowship, beyond just the time off from teaching, is in the exchanges that result in the community of fellows.

    I am a professor in the School of Statistics who is majoring in the multidisciplinary research of Probability, Statistics, Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics. Currently I am working with two post docs from IMA. I am also PIs of two NSF sponsored projects. I definitely need a lot of time to work on my research projects by taking less time in teaching. Does this fit the category to get an IAS Faculty Fellowship? Thank you very much! Tiefeng
