Job Details


Princeton University

Princeton University invites applications for the newly established Future Faculty in the Physical Sciences (FFPS) Fellowship. We aim to appoint a diverse cohort of early career scientists who will conduct research in physics, broadly defined to include the subdisciplines of astrophysics, biophysics, and geophysics and planetary physics, independently or in collaboration with Princeton faculty, postdoctoral researchers and students. The Fellowship aims to increase excellence at Princeton by bringing scholars with unique backgrounds and insights, whose work will contribute to the promotion of groups that have been historically, and are presently, under-represented in physics and related fields. Candidates who have demonstrated a strong commitment to remedying the historical under-representation of people of color and women in physics (or the physical sciences more generally) through work promoting inclusion, equity, and diversity through teaching, advising, mentoring, advocacy, or public outreach are especially encouraged to apply. FFPS Fellows will have a primary home in the Department of Physics, of Astrophysical Sciences, or of Geosciences, and will be part of an actively mentored research community across institutional affiliations, which may include the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, the Center for the Physics of Biological Function, the Princeton Gravity Initiative, and other Centers and Programs. The Fellowship includes an annual research fund. Appointments will be made at the postdoctoral or more senior research rank. Appointments are for one year, renewable annually based on satisfactory performance, for a total of up to three years. The expected starting date is September 1, 2022, although this is flexible. A PhD in the physical sciences or a related field is required. Interested persons should submit a curriculum vitae, a bibliography, a statement of research interests and plans, and provide contact information for three references by November 2, 2021, 11:59 p.m. EST. A personal statement and/or a description of the applicant's work in broadening opportunities in the field should be included as a separate section of the research statement. Applicants must apply via the web at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/21901 Letters of recommendation will also be handled through this site. All applications received by November 15, 2021, 11:59 p.m. EST will be fully considered, but applications will continue to be accepted until the position(s) are filled. Only submissions through the application website will be considered. For further inquiries, contact [email protected] This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
