The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2019-2022 fellowship competition.
Four three-year Postdoctoral Fellowships will be awarded:
- Two Open Fellowships in any discipline represented in the Society
- One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies
- One Fellowship in LGBT Studies
Appointed in the Humanities Council and academic departments, postdoctoral fellows pursue their research, attend weekly seminars and teach half-time as lecturers for a term of three years. In each of the first two years, fellows teach one course each semester; in their third year, only one course. The salary for 2019-2020 will be approximately $88,800. Fellows must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year.
Applicants holding the Ph.D. at the time of application must have received the degree after January 1, 2017. Applicants not yet holding the Ph.D. must have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation - approximately half - at the time of application. Successful candidates must fulfill all requirements for the Ph.D., including filing of the dissertation, by June 15, 2019. Candidates for/recipients of doctoral degrees in Education, Jurisprudence and from Princeton University are not eligible. Applicants may apply only once to the Princeton Society of Fellows.
