Princeton University's Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP) seeks visiting scholars for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Center supports empirical research on democratic political processes and institutions. Applications are welcome from political scientists and scholars in related social science disciplines. CSDP visiting scholar positions are restricted to employed scholars on leave who are expected to return to their position. Each scholar will pursue research and contribute to the intellectual life of the Center, the Department of Politics, and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. CSDP scholars must be in residence at Princeton during the academic terms, and are expected to participate in the weekly CSDP seminars and related weekly research seminars in the Department of Politics, as well as occasional lectures, conferences, and other events. Successful candidates will receive a competitive salary (those who hold faculty appointments at other academic institutions normally receive one-half their academic-year salaries for the appointment period, but this may vary depending on level of support from the home institution), applicable benefits, a taxable moving allowance, and a research allowance. Verification of employment and salary will be requested prior to approval by the Dean of the Faculty. In the reference field of the application, please supply the name and email address of your administrator who can provide this verification. PhD or equivalent doctoral degree required. Applicants must apply online and submit a CV, a 3-5 page (double-spaced) statement of research interest/research proposal, a writing sample, a brief statement of anticipated (estimated) salary support from the home institution for the 2018-2019 academic year, and statement of the home institution's leave policy. A cover letter is optional. The deadline for receipt of complete applications is Friday, December 1, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
