The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for three postdoctoral fellowships: (1) The Hannah Seeger Davis Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies; (2) the Mary Seeger O'Boyle Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies; (3) the Ted and Elaine Athanassiades Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies. Fellows will be appointed as Postdoctoral Research Associates for one academic year doing research on a full-time basis. These fellowships are awarded annually on a competitive basis. Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible to apply. There is one online application form and procedure for all three fellowships.
These fellowships are intended for scholars in Hellenic Studies, with a special emphasis on Modern Greek Studies, Byzantine Studies, or Late Antique Studies, including their relation to the Classical tradition. The goal of this postdoctoral research fellowship program is to advance the scholarship of outstanding Hellenists at an early stage of their career and thus to strengthen the field of post-Classical Greek Studies in the United States and abroad.
These fellowships are residential and, as such, fellows are required to be at Princeton during the term of their appointment, devoting their time to research and writing. They are expected to participate in Hellenic Studies activities and the intellectual life of the University, and are encouraged to meet colleagues in their respective academic disciplines. During the fall term fellows offer a lecture organized by the Seeger Center. They enjoy full access to the University's library, archival, and computing resources. They are provided shared workspace at the Hellenic Studies office, as well as access to the Hellenic Studies Reading Room in the University Library.
Candidates must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by February 1, 2019 (including the defense, viva voce, or final public oral examination), and not earlier than September 1, 2016. Fellows may not pursue another degree while on this fellowship, nor may they hold any other fellowships, positions, or visiting opportunities concurrently with their appointment at Princeton University. Scholars with Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, as well as former recipients of any Hellenic Studies research fellowships at Princeton University, are not eligible to apply. Fellowship awards cannot be deferred to a later term.
