Princeton University call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS).
The program will select early-career 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 fellowships will be awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are established, independent scholars. However, applicants are to return to their positions at the conclusion of the fellowship. And they must have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and unusual intellectual promise. Early-career scholars will be appointed at the rank of Visiting Research Scholar.
During the academic year 2022-23, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be “Sustainable Futures.” Fellowships will base 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 ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.
Nevertheless, for applicants with a current faculty appointment or a professional research appointment, an official letter from the applicant’s current employer affirming their permission for the applicant to spend the academic year at Princeton University. If the applicant is an established independent scholar, please upload a PDF stating this as the applicant’s current status.
- The Fung Global Fellows Program welcomes applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields – humanities, social science, natural science, engineering, technology, law, architecture – to examine varied notions and workable practices of sustainability.
- Applicants must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2012.
Applicants are to submit the following items for application before the deadline:
- Cover letter (1.5 pages maximum)
- Curriculum Vitae (including publications)
- Research proposal (maximum of 3 pages, single-spaced)
- One writing sample (article or book chapter, maximum of 50 pages)
- The names and email addresses of three referees.
