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.

Applications must be submitted via the online portal by the application deadline, August 22, 2018 (11:59 p.m. EST). Mailed, emailed or faxed partial or complete applications cannot be considered. 

Applicants should review the following pages on eligibility criteria, disciplines represented in the Society of Fellows, and guidelines for the application dossier carefully before completing the online application.
