Two Open Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences (OPEN)
Open to all disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows. The fellowships' responsibilities include both research and teaching, one course each semester in the first and second years, one course in the third year. The fellows will either participate in team-taught courses or offer self-designed courses in the host department and/or in an interdisciplinary program. In addition, fellows normally take on some advising in their specialty or related areas.
Ph.D. Degree Requirements:
Applicants already holding the Ph.D. degree at the time of their application must have received their degree between January 1, 2019 and August 4, 2020. Priority will be given to applicants who have received no more than one year of research-only funding past the Ph.D. degree.
The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.
Applicants will be asked to upload a document to the application site with evidence of completion of all requirements for the Ph.D. degree (either the formal Ph.D. certificate, an official transcript, or a degree confirmation letter from advisor).
Applicants who are ABD (All But Dissertation) at the time of their application: Applicants who do not meet the August 4, 2020 deadline for receipt of their Ph.D. but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree, including defense and filing of dissertation, by June 15, 2021, may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship provided they have completed a substantial portion of their dissertation (approximately half).
Applicants will be asked to upload a letter by the Department Chair or Director of Graduate Studies confirming “progress to degree” to the application site.
ABD candidates who are awarded a fellowship will be asked to provide an official document from the Registrar or Dean of the Graduate School by June 15, 2021, to confirm completion of all requirements for the Ph.D.
Other Eligibility Criteria:
If you have already applied to the Princeton Society of Fellows, you may not apply a second time. We therefore recommend that applicants wait until they have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half) before applying.
Candidates for/recipients of doctorates in Education (Ed.D. or Ph.D. degrees), in Jurisprudence, the DMA, and candidates for/recipients of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University are not eligible to apply.
The positions are subject to the University's background check policy.
