Each year, the School of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, invites about twenty scholars to be in residence for the full academic year to pursue their own research. The School welcomes applications in economics, political science, law, psychology, sociology and anthropology.
It encourages social scientific work with an historical and humanistic bent and also entertains applications in history, philosophy, literary criticism, literature and linguistics. Applicants must have a Ph.D. at time of application. Each year there is a general thematic focus that provides common ground for roughly half the scholars; for 2012-2013 the focus will be Economics and Politics.
The application deadline is November 1, 2011. Applications must be submitted through the Institute’s online application system, which can be found, along with more information about the theme, at www.sss.ias.edu/applications
