Junior fellows are PhD candidates in the advanced stages of dissertation work.

Junior fellows are expected to situate their research within a broader cultural frame of reference, bringing their perspectives to bear on religious questions facing the wider public. They do this in three ways:

  • by participating in the interdisciplinary biweekly Seminar, in which they present their work and critically discuss the presentations of other fellows;
  • and in an end-of-year forum, in which they present their research to public interlocutors.

Junior fellows are appointed for a full academic year and receive a stipend.

All students wishing to apply to be junior fellows should contact the dean of students in the Divinity School for more information.
