The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships: (1) The Hannah Seeger Davis Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies and (2) The Mary Seeger O'Boyle Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies.
These postdoctoral research fellowships are intended for early-career Hellenists in 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. Scholars in all humanities and social sciences disciplines are eligible to apply.
Fellows will be appointed as Postdoctoral Research Associates from September 2024 through June 2025, conducting research full-time. There is also the possibility for renewal for a second full year (July 2025 through June 2026), based on funding and performance. Fellows who are renewed may be offered the opportunity to teach or co-teach a course during their second year. Fellows who are renewed for a second year have the possibility of spending up to two months at the Princeton Athens Center, conducting research during Winter session 2026 and/or Summer 2026 (June–July 2026).
Selected candidates will be required to be in residence in Princeton or the local vicinity and demonstrate to the Seeger Center’s satisfaction the ability to be on campus on a daily basis to fulfill responsibilities relating to in-person participation.
Candidates are expected to have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by February 1, 2024 (including the defense, viva voce, or final public oral examination). Candidates are expected to have less than three years of post-Ph.D. work experience.
