Princeton University Postdoctoral Fellowships, 2010-2013

The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in 
the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites 
applications for the 2010-2013 fellowship competition. Three fellowships 
will be awarded: Open Fellowship (all disciplines represented in the Society 
of Fellows), Fellowship in Humanistic Studies, and Fellowship in Latin 
American Studies.

Applicants for either of the specialized fellowships may also apply for an 
Open fellowship. Please see website (listed below) for application 
guidelines and relevant disciplines.

Hosted jointly by the Humanities Council and academic departments, 
Postdoctoral Fellows pursue their research and teach half-time for a term of 
three years. The postdoctoral fellowship carries with it an appointment as a 
Lecturer. In each of the first two years, Fellows typically teach one course 
each semester. In their third year, Fellows teach only one course while 
remaining in residence at Princeton.

Fellows must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year. The 
stipend for 2010-2011 will be approximately $72,000. Non-US citizens may 
apply. Recipients of doctoral degrees in Education, Jurisprudence, and 
holders of PhD degrees from Princeton University, are not eligible.

 Selection is based on scholarly excellence, range and quality of teaching 
experience, and potential contributions to an interdisciplinary community.

Candidates must have received their PhD degree after January 1st, 2007. 
Those candidates who will not have their PhD by the time they apply but are 
expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the PhD degree, including 
filing the dissertation, by June 15th, 2010 may apply for a Postdoctoral 
Fellowship with the support of a letter of confirmation from their 
department chair. See website for details.

Candidates are asked to submit an application form (online) and a full 
dossier, postmarked by October 1st, 2009 to:
