Princeton University calls application for Lecturer and Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Society of Fellows in the United States of America. 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 2021-24 fellowship competition. Moreover, three fellowships will be awarded: Two Open Fellowships in any discipline represented in the Society and one Fellowship in Humanistic Studies. Applicants may apply for more than one fellowship pertinent to their research and teaching.
Appointed in the Council of the Humanities 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. Candidates of the Postdoctoral Fellowship at Princeton University must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year.
However, the 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.
