Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the program selects 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. Candidates will be considered in two categories: (1) Postdoctoral research associates who received their doctorate from an institution outside of the United States and who, at the time of application, do not hold a tenure-track faculty appointment; (2) Early- career scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are an established independent scholar in the designated theme of the program. Early-career scholars will be appointed at the rank of Visiting Research Scholar. The number of candidates hired will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pools.

For the academic year 2023-24 and the third year in a row, the theme of Fung Global Fellows Program is "Sustainable Futures." The program welcomes applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields, including social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, technology, law, architecture, and humanities, who analyze the sustainability of current systems and practices in light of historic, contemporary, and future challenges, with an eye on innovative and feasible changes that promise greater sustainability going into the future. The search committee will be particularly interested in applicants whose research plans align with at least one of many related ongoing research activities at Princeton, either at PIIRS or another academic unit. For more information about the theme of study, please see this link: http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/about/annual-research-topics.

Applications due on November 18, 2022 (11:59pm EST). To be eligible, post-doctoral applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. September 1, 2023 but cannot have more than two years of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, September 1, 2023. If a postdoctoral candidate has turned in a final draft of their dissertation but not yet completed their Ph.D. before the start date, they may be temporarily appointed as a Senior Research Assistant with a 10% reduction in salary until providing verification of their Ph.D. degree. Early-career scholars must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2013. Fellowships will be awarded 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 the ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.
