Deadline: Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships 2010 - 2011


Academic Year 2010-2011

The Program in Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for three post-doctoral fellowships: (1) The Hannah Seeger Davis Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies; (2) the Mary Seeger O'Boyle Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies; (3) the Ted and Elaine Athanassiades Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies. Fellows will be appointed as Post-Doctoral Research Associates for one academic year doing research on a full-time basis. These fellowships are awarded annually on a competitive basis. Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible to apply. There is one online application form and procedure for all three appointments.

These fellowships are intended for scholars in Hellenic Studies, with a special emphasis on Modern Greek Studies, Byzantine Studies, or Late Antique Studies, including their relation to the Classical tradition. The goal of this post-doctoral research fellowship program is to advance the scholarship of outstanding Hellenists at an early stage of their career and thus to strengthen the field of post-Classical Greek Studies in the United States and abroad.

The salary will be $43,000 for the academic year (term of residence September 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011). In addition to their salary, fellows receive reimbursement (up to $2,000 per academic year) for research related expenses, such as books and materials, travel expenses when presenting papers at academic conferences during the period of their appointment, etc. Fellows are responsible for their own travel and moving arrangements and expenses, as well as for finding and paying for their housing at Princeton. Before their departure, fellows are required to submit a report on their scholarly activities at Princeton.

Fellows are required to be in residence at Princeton during the term of their appointment, devoting the major portion of their time to research and writing. They are expected to participate in the activities of the Program and the intellectual life of the University. They present their work-in-progress at the weekly Hellenic Studies workshop and are encouraged to meet colleagues in their respective academic disciplines. They enjoy full access to the University's library, archival, and computing resources. They are provided shared workspace at the Hellenic Studies office, as well as access to the Hellenic Studies Reading Room in the University Library. No secretarial services or office supplies are available. Information technology support is available through the University Computer Center.

Candidates must have completed all the requirements for the doctoral degree by March 1, 2010 (including the defense, viva voce, or final public oral examination), but no earlier than June 1, 2007. Exceptions may be granted to applicants who earned the Ph.D. degree prior to June 1, 2006, if they were kept from engaging in research immediately after obtaining their doctorate because of having been on parental leave, having been ill, having completed military service, or a similar type of circumstance. A statement to this effect must be submitted by the applicant and must be certified by the applicant's Department Chair. Post-Doctoral fellows may not pursue another degree while on this fellowship, nor may they hold any other fellowships or visiting positions concurrently with their appointment at Princeton University. Scholars with Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University, as well as former recipients of any kind of support from the Program in Hellenic Studies are not eligible to apply.

The Committee on Hellenic Studies awards post-doctoral fellowships on the basis of several criteria: (a) scholarly accomplishment in a discipline of the humanities or the social sciences, and overall academic excellence and promise; (b) potential contribution to an interdisciplinary community of scholars at Princeton; (c) significance and quality of the research proposal in definition, clarity, organization, and scope; (d) potential future impact on the field of Hellenic Studies through teaching and writing; (e) ability to benefit from and contribute to the Program in Hellenic Studies at Princeton. Applications are reviewed both by specialists in the candidate’s academic discipline and by an interdisciplinary group of senior scholars. All Committee decisions are confidential.

Candidates are required to submit an online application form including the following: (1) cover letter with title and summary (200 words) of proposed research project; (2) research proposal (five pages; 2,000 words), including detailed description of project, timetable, explicit goals, and the reason it is proposed to be pursued at Princeton; (3) selected bibliography; (4) curriculum vitae and list of publications; (5) sample chapter of the dissertation or other recent work; (6) three confidential letters of recommendation from individuals who are not current members of the Princeton University faculty; and (7) a letter from the candidate's Department Chair confirming the date of completion of all the requirements for the doctoral degree. The letter confirming the date of completion of all the requirements for the doctoral degree should be Emailed, followed by hard-copy to the address below, and must be received by March 3, 2010.

Referees should not submit letters of recommendation prior to completion of the application. The online application has a designated area for referee emails. After the online application has been submitted, referees will receive an email with instructions on uploading a letter a recommendation directly to the Program. Referees must submit their online letters of recommendation to the Program by January 8, 2010. Materials submitted with the application are the property of the Program and will not be returned. They will be used solely for the purpose of considering the application for the research fellowship.
