Deadline: January 10, 2022
Applications are open for the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) 2022-2023. 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 number of candidates hired at this rank will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pools. The fellowships will be awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are an established independent scholar. They will also be expected to return to their positions at the conclusion of the fellowship. Lastly, 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.” 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.
- Eligible are scholars who received their Ph.D. or equivalent within 10 years of the proposed start date of the fellowship: for the 2022-23 program that is no earlier than September 1, 2012. No exceptions will be made. The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree at the applicant’s home institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.
- Early-career applicants must hold a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or be established independent scholars outside the United States at the time of application, to which they are expected to return at the conclusion of the fellowship.
- Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers.
- All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
The following items must be submitted by the applicant, in English, by January 10, 2022:
- 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)
- For those applicants with a current faculty appointment or a professional research appointment, an official letter from the applicant’s current employer affirming that, should an offer be made, the applicant would be permitted to accept it and to spend the academic year at Princeton University. If applicant is an established independent scholar, upload a PDF stating this as applicant’s current status.
- The names and email addresses for three referees, who will be contacted automatically by the online application system with an invitation to upload their letter of recommendation to the system by the application deadline.
