The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, calls for fellowship applications annually. 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 a fellow's academic host department. Fellows are provided with a competitive salary, benefits, a $5,000 research account, access to university grants, a shared office, a desktop 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.

At this time, the Society of Fellows is accepting applications for the 2021-24 fellowship competition. Application deadline is August 4, 2020 (11:59 p.m. EST).
