2019-2022 Fellowship Competition

The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2019-2022 fellowship competition. Three to five postdoctoral fellows are appointed each year for three-year terms in residence to pursue research and teach half-time in their academic host department, the Program in Humanistic Studies, or other university programs. The fellowships carry with them an appointment as lecturer in the fellow's host department.  Fellows are provided with a salary of approx. $88,800 per year, benefits, a $5,000 research account, access to university grants, a shared office, a personal computer and other resources. Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the academic year in order to attend weekly seminars and participate fully in the intellectual life of the Society. For the 2018-2021 competition, we received 841 applications for four postdoctoral fellowships.

For the 2019-2022 fellowship competition, four fellowships will be awarded; applicants may apply for more than one fellowship pertinent to their research and teaching:

1. Two Open Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences (OPEN)

2. One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies (HUM)
