Free open Job in North, South & Central America Fung Global Fellows Program – Postdoctoral Research Associate at 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 number of candidates hired will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pools. 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.

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/12281 Applications are due by November 15, 2019 (11:59 p.m. EST). To be eligible, post-doctoral applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. before July 1, 2020 but cannot have more than two years of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, September 1, 2020. 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 that they have completed all requirements for the Ph.D., 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.
