Four new fellows at IHR-UB

The Institute of Research in Humanities is proud to announce four new fellows for 2015:

  1. Ciprian Jeler, Groups, populations and statistics: Taking the ambiguity out of multi-level natural selection
  2. Christian Ferencz-Flatz, Benjamin’s Challenge to Husserl. A Critical Approach to the Phenomenology of Sensory Perception
  3. Kirsten Walsh, Newton’s Epistemic Triad
  4. Fabrizio Baldassarri, Unexpected relationships. Descartes Botanical and Chemical Sources

The four new fellows were selected following a harsh competition, from 19 excellent applications. All applications have been evaluated in a two steps process: (1) external evaluation of the applicant file and the research proposal (each application has been evaluated by two international scholars); (2) the first nine applicants that were placed on the short-list after the first stage have been selected to be discussed in a panel-committee.

All fellowships are for 6 months, with the possibility to extend them with another 2 months. They will start on 1 May 2015.
