Princeton University Fellowships

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY
SOCIETY OF FELLOWS
IN THE LIBERAL ARTS
Postdoctoral Fellowships for 2017-2020
Application postmark deadline: September 15, 2016
The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2017-2020 fellowship competition.
Four fellowships will be awarded:
Open Fellowship in any discipline represented in the Society
Fellowship in Humanistic Studies
Fellowship in LGBT Studies
Fellowship in Race and/or Ethnicity Studies
Applicants may apply for one or more fellowship(s) pertinent to their research and teaching. Please see our website
( http://www.princeton.edu/sf/fellowships/ ) for eligibility, fellowship descriptions, application guidelines, and relevant disciplines. 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 2017-2018 will be approximately $84,500. 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 candidates from underrepresented backgrounds.
A candidate holding the Ph.D. at the time of application must have received the degree after January 1, 2015 . A candidate 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, 2017.
See website for details.
