Fellowship Opportunity: Canadian Centre for Architecture

Posted in fellowships by Editor on November 1, 2010

Visiting Scholars Program 2011-2012
Montréal, Canadian Centre for Architecture

Applications due by 15 January 2011

The CCA Visiting Scholars Program encourages and supports innovative research in the history, theory, and criticism of architecture in the broadest sense. The program particularly welcomes historical and critical research proposals that are prompted by, or refer to, the theory and practice of contemporary design culture and related social issues. Candidates engaged in contemporary professional practices are also encouraged to apply. The aim of the program is to foster intellectual exchange; scholars in residence pursue individual research projects and participate in Study Centre seminars. The Program welcomes applications from scholars and architects conducting research at post-doctoral or more advanced academic levels. The Study Centre also offers a limited number of Associate Scholars positions to non-stipendiary residential fellows.

Applicants should submit a research proposal that takes into account the purpose of the Program and the scope of the CCA Collection; no other chronological or thematic restrictions apply. Appointments are made on the basis of an open process of application and selection by an international jury composed of scholars and architects. Criteria for selection are the quality and originality of the project, the scholarly record of the candidate, and the feasibility of the project in light of the resources of the CCA Collection. Residencies are granted for periods of one to six months. Visiting Scholars will receive competitive research stipends, financial support, logistical assistance for relocation, private offices, administrative and research assistance as needed.

The Study Centre welcomes proposals from scholars and architects regardless of nationality or any other non-academic factor. Applicants should have completed a PhD at the time of application (to be conferred by 15 January 2011); alternatively, they should provide evidence of significant scholarly achievements. Applications may be submitted in either English or French. The completed application package should be received by the Study Centre no later than Friday, 15 January 2011.
