Job Details


Princeton University

Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). The program will select postdoctoral scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. (Note if the Covid-19 pandemic prevents a residency at Princeton, Fellows will remain in their home country and participate in the program remotely.) The number of candidates hired will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pools. The postdoctoral appointment will be for one academic year for scholars who have received a Ph.D. at an institution outside the United States and, who at the time of application, do not have a tenure-track faculty appointment. The candidates must also demonstrate outstanding scholarly achievement and have exhibited unusual intellectual promise. During the academic year 2022-23, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be "Sustainable Futures." The Fung Global Fellows Program welcomes applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields - humanities, social science, natural science, engineering, technology, law, architecture - to examine varied notions and workable practices of sustainability. For more information about the theme of study, please see this link: http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/about/annual-research-topics. Applicants must apply online at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/21301. Applications are due by November 15, 2021 (11:59 p.m. EST). To be eligible, post-doctoral applicants must have completed all Ph.D. requirements before 9/1/2022 but cannot have more than two years of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, 9/1/2022. If a candidate has turned in a final draft of their dissertation but not yet completed their Ph.D. before the start date, they may be temporarily appointed as a Senior Research Assistant with 10% reduction in salary. Upon providing verification of their Ph.D. degree, they would be promoted in rank and salary. The postdoctoral selection will be made based on the strength of the candidates' proposed research projects, the relationship of their projects to the program theme, the candidates' scholarly records and their ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program. For more information on eligibility requirements and the Fung Global Fellows Program see http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/call-applications. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. The following items must be submitted by the applicant, in English, by November 15, 2021: - Cover letter (1.5 pages maximum) - Curriculum Vitae (including publications) - Research proposal (maximum of 3 pages, single spaced) - One writing sample (article or book chapter, maximum of 50 pages) -The names and email addresses for three referees, who will be contacted automatically by the online application system with an invitation to upload their letter of recommendation to the system by the application deadline. (**To be submitted by your referees by the November 15, 2021 deadline.**)
