Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). The program will select both senior scholars and early-career scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. The number of candidates hired will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pool. The fellowship will be awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are an established independent scholar in the designated theme of the program, and have exhibited unusual intellectual promise. They will be expected to return to their position after the conclusion of the fellowship. Early career scholars selected will be in residence at Princeton for an academic year; senior scholars selected will be in residence at Princeton between three to ten months during the academic year.
During the academic year 2020-21, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be "Thinking Globally." For more information on the theme of study please see: http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/call-applications. We welcome applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields from the sciences to the humanities whose work addresses this set of themes in any historical period or world region.
Applicants must apply online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/12282. Applications are due by November 15, 2019 (11:59 p.m. EST). Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate's proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the program theme, the candidate's scholarly record and ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program. Early-career scholars must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2010. Senior scholars must have received their doctorates before September 1, 2010, and have a record of scholarly accomplishment in the designated theme of the program.
