The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities, together with the Council of Humanities at Princeton University, are seeking postdoctoral research associate or more senior applications, hired at the rank of Associate Professional Specialist, Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior, for the 2017-18 academic year. The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities is an interdisciplinary program supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that combines the efforts of a diverse group of faculty, programs, and schools to develop a dynamic and nuanced understanding of urban issues today. Mellon Fellows may be from any discipline. Additional information about the Princeton-Mellon Initiative and the Council of Humanities may be found at https://arc-hum.princeton.edu/ and https://humanities.princeton.edu/. We seek to attract a fellow whose work is grounded in the humanities to collaborate with both programs. Applicants with outstanding intellectual, literary, and visual talents who demonstrate an abiding interest in multi-disciplinary work focused on the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and the humanities are strongly encouraged to apply. The individual may be expected to team-teach a new interdisciplinary design studio for undergraduates that will be required for Urban Studies certificate students, or a seminar on urbanism and the environment, with a member of the design faculty in the School of Architecture at Princeton (contingent upon sufficient enrollments and approval from the Dean of the Faculty). We will accept applicants from those who have recently earned a Ph.D. or M.Arch. Please submit a cover letter (including your teaching interests), CV, 1,000 word description of a proposed research project, and a brief (chapter or article-length) writing sample, and contact information for three references by May 7, 2017 for full consideration to https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/1301. The Mellon Fellow will receive a $75,000, 10-month, academic year salary for 2017-18, plus benefits. He or she will be able to draw from a small fund for programs that he/she would like to initiate. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Appointment rank will be determined based on the applicant's qualifications at the time of appointment. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
