USA: Postdoc scholars at Princeton Society of Fellows

*2011-2014 Fellowship Competition*

*Application Postmark deadline: October 1, 2010*

The Princeton Society of Fellows, an interdisciplinary group of scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and selected natural sciences, invites applications for the 2011-2014 Fellowship competition.

Five three-year Postdoctoral Fellowships will be awarded this year. The stipend for academic year 2011-12 will be approximately $72,000. Fellows are provided with a shared office, a personal computer, a research account of $5000 a year, and access to university grants, benefits and other resources. Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the academic year in order that they can attend weekly seminars
and participate fully in the intellectual life of the Society.

All candidates will be informed of the status of their application by the end of January 2011. Interviews will take place in early February. The Society will reimburse the cost of travel and lodging associated with the interview. Names of fellowship winners will be posted on the Society of Fellows' website in July 2011.

Please note the Society's new dates of degree eligibility. These are firm dates with no exceptions.

a) Candidates already holding the PhD degree at time of application: You must have received your degree between January 1, 2009 and October 1, 2010. The receipt of the PhD is determined by the date on which you fulfilled all requirements for the degree at your institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation.

b) Candidates who are ABD (all but dissertation) at time of application: If you will not meet the October 1, 2010, deadline for receipt of PhD but are expected to have fulfilled all conditions for the degree, including defense and filing of dissertation, by June 15, 2011, you may still apply for a postdoctoral fellowship provided you have completed a substantial portion of the dissertation (approximately half). We ask that you include in your dossier a letter confirming your "progress to
degree" from either your Department Chair or your Director of Graduate Studies.
