PIIRS Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship program for the 2018-19 year. Up to three 3-year postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded to exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients who are researching issues of global importance in the sciences and engineering, arts, humanities, and social sciences. Fields of special interest include hydro-climate modeling and analysis of infectious diseases, other global challenges and large structural processes, systems thinking, and cross-regional interaction (Brazil-Africa, Brazil-China, China-India, China-Africa, India-Africa, Africa-Europe, Russia-China, etc.). Applicants must have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and excellence in teaching.
The fellowship's responsibilities include both teaching (one course or equivalent each semester for two years, one course in the third year) and research. The Fellow will either participate in a team-taught course or offer a self-designed course in an interdisciplinary program. In addition, the Fellow will do some advising in his/her specialty or related areas. When teaching, the successful candidate will carry a secondary rank of Lecturer, and any teaching is contingent on sufficient course enrollments and the prior approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
Appointments, to be made at the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate, will be annual with the expectation of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and continued funding. In addition to salary and benefits, the program will provide fellows a research account of $3,000 a year, an office, a personal computer and other resources. Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the year in order to attend related seminars and workshops and participate fully in the intellectual life of PIIRS and related units. A Ph.D. is required.
