Visting Fellowship Applications

The Centre for Research on Religion has an annual programme under which scholars, either from Canada or from abroad, who may wish to spend the year (or part of it, but not less than one term) at McGill University for the purposes of advanced research, are welcomed as Visiting Fellows. These Fellowships are non-stipendiary and ideally suited to faculty members on sabbatical leave from their permanent positions. Successful candidates will normally have an established academic reputation and have experience of teaching at university level.

Visiting Fellows become members of McGill University during their stay and enjoy many of the benefits of working in an international centre for advanced research in the fields of religious study. The Centre provides Visiting Fellows with an office or a library carrel, telephone and internet facilities, as well as full access to the McGill library system. Visiting Fellows are invited to become members of the Senior Common Room in the Faculty of Religious Studies.

 Applications with an abstract of proposed research at the Centre together with a curriculum vitae should be sent to:
