The Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2019-22 fellowship competition. Application deadline is August 22, 2018 (11:59 p.m. EST). Four fellowships will be awarded, and applicants may apply for more than one fellowship pertinent to their research and teaching:
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.
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.
Selection is based on exceptional 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.
