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
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:
