Description

‣ The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2015-2018 Fellowship competition.

‣ 2015 Princeton Postdoctoral Fellowships Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the academic year in order to attend weekly seminars and participate fully in the intellectual life of the Society.

‣ If you have already applied to the Princeton Society of Fellows, you may not apply a second time.

‣ Applicants may apply for one or more fellowship(s) pertinent to their research and teaching.


‣ Two Open Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences (OPEN): Open to all disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows.

‣ In each of the first two years, the successful candidate pursues research half-time and teaches one course each semester, either team-taught or self-designed, in the host department or in an interdisciplinary Program.

‣ In addition, the fellow normally does some advising in his/her specialty or related areas. In the third year, the fellow teaches one course in the fall semester and devotes the final semester to full-time research.


‣ Fellowship in the Study of Race and/or Ethnicity (RE): 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 Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts.

‣ The postdoctoral 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 social sciences.


‣ Fellowship in Humanistic Studies (HUM): This fellowship is sponsored jointly by the Humanities Council and Society of Fellows, and is open to candidates in all relevant disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows.

The Fellow pursues research half-time. In each of the first two years, she or he will join faculty from various fields in the humanities to teach the interdisciplinary year-long sequence “Approaches to Western Culture” in either the Fall semester (Antiquity to the late Middle Ages) or the Spring semester (Renaissance to Modernism).

Eligibility

To be eligible for 2015 Princeton Postdoctoral Fellowships , candidates should meet the following criteria

‣ PhD degree requirements. Please note the Society’s dates of degree eligibility.

‣ These are firm dates with no exceptions:
-Candidates already holding the PhD degree at time of application: You must have received your degree between January 1, 2013 and October 1, 2014.

‣ The receipt of the PhD is determined by the date on which you fulfilled all requirements for the degree at your institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation.


‣ Candidates who are ABD (all but dissertation) at time of application: If you will not meet the October 1, 2014, deadline for receipt of PhD but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree, including defense and filing of dissertation, by June 15, 2015, you may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship provided you have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half).

‣ We ask that you include in your dossier a letter confirming your “progress to degree” from either your Department Chair or your Director of Graduate Studies.

‣ Please note that candidates awarded a fellowship will be asked to provide a document from either the Registrar or Dean of their Graduate School by June 15, 2015, to confirm completion of all requirements for the PhD.

‣ Recipients of doctorates in Education (EdD or PhD degrees), doctorates of Jurisprudence, and holders of PhD degrees from Princeton University are not eligible to apply.


‣ If you have already applied to the Princeton Society of Fellows, you may not apply a second time.

‣ We therefore recommend that  2015 Princeton Postdoctoral Fellowships candidates wait until they have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half) before applying.


‣ Fellowships will be awarded to candidates at the beginning of their academic career. Candidates must have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and excellence in teaching.
