The Center for African American Studies at Princeton University invites 
applications from pre-tenure scholars and recent Ph.D. recipients in all 
disciplines for two postdoctoral fellowships. These fellowships will be 
awarded for the academic year 2009-2010 to emerging scholars who will devote 
their ten-month residency at Princeton to writing about race in the national 
or global contexts and, with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty, to 
teaching one semester-long undergraduate course.

Applicants should have received the doctorate within the past five years and 
cannot be in the process of writing a dissertation. The Postdoctoral 
Fellowship period extends from September 1, 2009 until July 1, 2010 and 
provides a competitive salary. A selection committee of Center for African 
American Studies faculty evaluated applicants on the basis of:
·         The significance of their proposed research and its relevance to 
the purposes of the center;
·         The quality of their previous research and their ability to 
benefit from the activities of the center;
·         The contribution they are likely to make to higher education in 
the future through teaching and writing about race.

How to apply: Applicants must submit all of the following information by 
November 7, 2008.
1.       Curriculum vitae
2.       Scholarly paper (written in the past three years)
3.       Statement of no more than 1,500 words describing the proposed 
research project
4.       Three letters of recommendation (at least one from someone who was 
not a dissertation supervisor) sent directly to the Center for African
          American Studies by November 7, 2008
5.       Syllabi for three undergraduate courses
