Current Associates and Fellows Research Appointments

Each year, the tenured and untenured University of Illinois faculty are invited to submit scholarly or creative proposals for consideration by the Center’s permanent Professors. Faculty members with winning proposals are appointed Associates and Fellows and awarded one semester of release time to pursue their projects in the coming academic year.

In accordance with the Center’s mission, these appointments provide an incentive to pursue the highest level of scholarly achievement. They also provide faculty members with an unusual opportunity to explore new ideas and demonstrate early results.

With the Professors, Associates and Fellows form the intellectual core of the Center for Advanced Study community. They are invited to participate in CAS events and have opportunities to present their work to the CAS community. Thus, each year brings together the established and the new in an ever-changing flux of ideas and disciplines.
