Fung Global Fellows Program Postdoctoral Research Associate

Princeton University

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 postdoctoral scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. The postdoctoral appointment will be for one academic year for scholars who have received a Ph.D. at an institution outside the United States and, who at the time of application, do not have a tenure-track faculty appointment. The candidates must also demonstrate outstanding scholarly achievement and have exhibited unusual intellectual promise. The number of admitted candidates will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pool.

For the academic year 2023-24 and the third year in a row, the theme of Fung Global Fellows Program is "Sustainable Futures." The program welcomes applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields, including social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, technology, law, architecture, and humanities, who analyze the sustainability of current systems and practices in light of historic, contemporary, and future challenges, with an eye on innovative and feasible changes that promise greater sustainability going into the future. The search committee will be particularly interested in applicants whose research plans align with at least one of many related ongoing research activities at Princeton, either at PIIRS or another academic unit. For more information about the theme of study, please see this link: http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/about/annual-research-topics.

Applicants must apply online at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/27224.

Applications are due by November 18, 2022 (11:59 p.m. EST). To be eligible, post-doctoral applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. before September 1, 2023 but cannot have more than two years of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, September 1, 2023. If a candidate has turned in a final draft of their dissertation but not yet completed their Ph.D. before the start date, they may be temporarily appointed as a Senior Research Assistant with a 10% reduction in salary. Upon providing verification of their Ph.D. degree, they would then be promoted in rank and salary. The postdoctoral selection will be made based on the strength of the candidates’ proposed research projects, the relationship of their projects to the program theme, the candidates’ scholarly records and their ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program. For more information on eligibility requirements and the Fung Global Fellows Program see http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/call-applications. This position is subject to the University’s background check policy.

The following items must be submitted by the applicant, in English, by November 18, 2022:

  • Cover letter (1.5 pages maximum)
  • Curriculum Vitae (including publications)
  • Research proposal (maximum of 3 pages, single spaced)
  • One writing sample (dissertation chapter, article, or book chapter, maximum of 50 pages)
  • The names and email addresses for three referees, who will be contacted automatically by the online application system with an invitation to upload their letter of recommendation to the system by the application deadline.
