Princeton University

The University Center for Human Values at Princeton University invites applications for Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellowships for the academic year 2022-23. Fellows devote an academic year in residence at Princeton to research and writing about topics involving human values in public and private life. This full-time visiting program is open to scholars in all disciplines provided their research plans qualify. In recent years fellows have been drawn from fields including philosophy, political theory, literature, history, classics, economics and law, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive. Fellows are expected to reside in or around Princeton and to be active contributors to the intellectual life of the Center. This includes participating in a weekly seminar attended by fellows and Center faculty to discuss work in progress and in various other seminars, colloquia and lectures sponsored by the Center. Fellows enjoy access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University. Candidates must have a doctorate or equivalent professional degree and a strong record of research publications appropriate to their career stage. Typically Fellows hold faculty positions at other universities or colleges; in exceptional cases we consider applications from independent scholars when there is a high level of scholarly achievement. This is not a postdoctoral fellowship program and we do not generally consider candidates who will have held the Ph.D. for less than two years at the time of appointment. The fellowship period is anticipated to begin on September 1 and run for the academic year. Fellows normally receive stipends of up to one-half their academic-year salaries (subject to a minimum and maximum set each fall). Ordinarily their home institutions provide a portion of their salaries in addition to all benefits, although this is not a requirement for appointment. Stipends for independent scholars will not exceed the maximum for fellows holding appointments elsewhere. The main considerations in the evaluation of applications are the following: *The significance of the proposed research and its relevance to the purposes of the University Center for Human Values (see http://uchv.princeton.edu/ for more information); *The quality of a candidate's previous research and the contribution the candidate is likely to make in the future through teaching and writing; *The likelihood that the research would benefit from being conducted in the University Center environment. HOW TO APPLY: Candidates must submit an online application at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/20741 The following materials will be required: 1. A curriculum vitae; 2. A scholarly paper (of no more than 12,000 words, not including bibliography) written in the past three years; 3. A statement (of no more than 1,500 words) describing the proposed research project and including a brief working title for the project; and 4. Contact information for three referees, including at least one who was not a graduate advisor. Referees will be contacted directly by email with instructions for uploading letters of reference. These materials must be submitted online by the application deadline of Monday, November 1, 2021, 11:59 p.m. EST. We do not accept application materials by any other method. Letters of reference should be submitted by end of business day on Monday, November 8, 2021. The selection committee begins reviewing applications immediately so letters of reference received after the priority deadline may put candidates at a disadvantage. Decisions are expected to be announced in late March 2022.
