Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences, 2022, Princeton University, US

Publish Date: Jul 01, 2022

Deadline: Sep 02, 2022

The Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities and social sciences, invites applications for the 2023–26 fellowship competition. Five fellowships are to be awarded:

  • Two or three Open Fellowships in any discipline represented in the Society 
  • One Fellowship in Humanistic Studies 
  • One Fellowship in East Asian Studies
  • One Fellowship in Race and Ethnicity Studies

Appointed in the Council of the Humanities and academic departments, postdoctoral fellows pursue their research, attend weekly seminars, and teach half-time as lecturers for a term of three years. In each of the first two years, fellows teach one course each semester; in their third year, only one course in either semester. Fellows must reside in or near Princeton during the academic year. 

Eligibility Criteria
Applicants already holding the Ph.D. degree at the time of their application must have received their degree between January 1, 2021 and August 2, 2022. Priority will be given to applicants who have received no more than one year of research-only funding past the Ph.D. degree. 

Applicants who are ABD (All But Dissertation) at the time of their application:  Applicants who do not meet the August 2, 2022 deadline for receipt of their Ph.D., but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree by June 15, 2023, including defense and filing of dissertation, may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship, provided they have completed a substantial portion of their dissertation (at least half).

If you have already applied to the Princeton Society of Fellows, you may not apply a second time.
