Postdoctoral Fellowship 2018-21, Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, Princeton University

Deadline: September 15 2017

Updated: July 06 2017

The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2018-2021 fellowship competition.

Four fellowships will be awarded:
- Three Open Fellowships in any discipline represented in the Society
- One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies

Applicants may apply for one or more fellowship(s) pertinent to their research and teaching. Please see our website for eligibility, requirements, and online application. http://princeton.edu/sf/fellowships

Hosted jointly by the Humanities Council and academic departments, Postdoctoral Fellows pursue their research, attend a weekly fellows’ seminar, and teach half time as Lecturers for a term of three years. 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 in Princeton.

The salary for 2018-2019 will be approximately $86,600. Fellows must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year. Non-U.S. citizens may apply. Recipients of doctoral degrees in Education, Jurisprudence, and holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University are not eligible. Candidates may apply only once to the Princeton Society of Fellows’ competition.

Selection is based on scholarly achievement and evidence of unusual promise; range and quality of teaching experience; and potential contributions to an interdisciplinary community. The Society of Fellows seeks a diverse and international pool of applicants, and especially welcomes those from underrepresented backgrounds.

Applicants holding the Ph.D. at the time of application must have received the degree after January 1, 2016. An applicant not yet holding the Ph.D. must have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half) at the time of application, and include a letter from the department chair confirming such progress toward degree. Successful candidates must fulfill all requirements for the Ph.D., including filing of the dissertation, by June 15, 2018.

Applicants are asked to submit an online application by September 15, 2017 (11:59 p.m.EST.) We do not accept mailed, emailed, or faxed applications.
