Job Description





Fung Global Fellows Program
Princeton University

Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at PIIRS. Each year the program selects 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.

Candidates will be considered in three categories:

  1. Postdoctoral research associates who received their doctorate from an institution outside of the United States and who, at the time of application, do not hold a tenure-track faculty appointment.
  2. Early-career 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
  3. Senior scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or be an established independent scholar in the designated theme of the program. Early career and postdoctoral scholars will be selected to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year; senior scholars will be selected to be in residence at Princeton between three to ten months during the academic year. All candidates must be based outside the United States.

During the academic year 2020-21, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be “Thinking Globally.” The goal of the 2020-21 Fung Global Fellows cohort will be to explore the ways people learned to rely on or to reject strangers far away, as well as to imagine how global relationships came to be and could be different. 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.

Applications are due on November 15, 2019. All candidates must reside outside the United States. 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. 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. 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 the ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.

Preferred and Required Qualifications

All candidates must reside outside the United States. 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.
