For the Princeton University Postdoctoral 2020-2023 fellowship competition, five fellowships will be awarded; applicants have the option to apply for more than one fellowship pertinent to their research and teaching.
Eligibility and benefits
1. Three Open Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences (OPEN)
Open to all disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows. The fellowship’s responsibilities include both research and teaching (one course each semester for two years, one course in the third year). The fellow will either participate in a team-taught course or offer a self-designed course, in the host department or in an interdisciplinary Program. In addition, the fellow normally does some advising in his/her specialty or related areas.
2. One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies (HUM)
This fellowship is sponsored jointly by the Humanities Council and Society of Fellows, and is open to candidates in humanities disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows. The fellowship’s responsibilities include both research and teaching (one course each semester for two years, one course in the third year).
The Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Study of Race and/or Ethnicity is sponsored jointly by the offices of the President and Dean of the Faculty of Princeton University, and the Society of Fellows. The fellow will be expected to pursue research that explores the discursive forms and meanings of concepts of race and ethnicity in one or more selected disciplines in the humanities and affiliated social sciences. The selection committee particularly welcomes applications from candidates whose scholarship is driven by innovative, interdisciplinary, and historical ways of thinking, including interests in pre-modern and non-western cultures.
Ph.D. Degree Requirements:
Applicants already holding the Ph.D. degree at time of application must have received their degree between January 1, 2018 and August 6, 2019. Priority will be given to applicants who have received no more than one year of research-only funding past the Ph.D. degree.
The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.
Applicants who are ABD (All But Dissertation) at the time of their application: Applicants who do not meet the August 6, 2019 deadline for receipt of their Ph.D. but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree, including defense and filing of dissertation, by June 15, 2020, may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship provided they have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half).
Deadline is August 6, 2019
