SCLP Visiting Fellows Programme

The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy (SCLP) invites applications for its Visiting Fellowship Programme, to commence in the fall of 2020. Up to two unfunded fellows will be in residence at a time, receiving shared office space, university library access, access to all SCLP research events and activities (including VIP invitations to meals at our special events), and the opportunity to deliver a lecture in our Hart Seminar series. The period of residence can be flexible, depending on the fellow’s needs. But visiting fellows should be aware that the SCLP is most active during the University’s two main terms, which run from October – January (except three weeks at the end of December and beginning of January), and from February – June (except for most of April).

The Surrey Centre for Law and Philosophy currently has fourteen regular research fellows, making it one of the largest concentrations of professional legal philosophers in the world. A Visiting Fellow may participate fully in all activities of the Centre, having multiple opportunities to share ideas and exchange draft papers, in addition to the formal lecture delivery mentioned above. The Centre has a very active schedule, hosting approximately eighteen talks per year in addition to three or four workshops focused on particular topics of interest to fellows.

Applicants should provide one piece of published work, a detailed CV, and an abstract (not to exceed 300 words) of a project they envision developing while in residence. These should be emailed to Dr. Hrafn Asgeirsson at before 15 January 2020. A committee of three regular fellows will assess applications primarily for fit with interests of regular fellows. As those interests change, applicants unsuccessful in a given year are encouraged to reapply when and if they are available at a later date.

Fellows will be expected to fund their own transportation, accommodation, and sustenance. The law school is located on the Stag Hill campus of the University, in picturesque Guildford. Accommodation can be obtained in serviced apartments in Guildford, which are offered by several companies. Many staff choose to live in London, which is approximately 30-45 minutes away by train from Waterloo Station. We will be happy to work with visitors to locate suitable accommodation.

Any requests for further information can be directed to Dr. Hrafn Asgeirsson, co-director of the Centre, at
