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 (including the Fellowship in LGBT
Studies) 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.
Fund for Reunion, Inc., the LGBT Alumni Association of Princeton University,
and the Society of Fellows are co-sponsors of a three-year postdoctoral
fellowship to be awarded to a scholar working on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,
Transgender issues in any of the disciplines represented in the Society, and
particularly in new and emerging fields.
The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to pursue research in any scholarly
areas that will make a positive contribution toward public discourse around
contemporary LGBT issues. The successful candidate is required to teach one
course each semester for the first two years and normally does some advising
in his/her specialty or related areas. In the third year, the fellow teaches
only one course and devotes the final semester to full-time research. The
LGBT fellow is also encouraged to share research interests with the wider
campus community, with the aim of creating a sustained dialogue on issues
related to LGBT equality.
