Fellowship: Princeton Hellenic Studies Postdoctoral Fellowships

Princeton University, NJ, USA

Deadline: 8 January 2020

The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships: (1) The Hannah Seeger Davis Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies and (2) The Mary Seeger O’Boyle Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies. These fellowships are awarded annually on a competitive basis. Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences are eligible to apply.

Terms of the fellowship: Fellows will be appointed as Postdoctoral Research Associates for September 2020 through June 2021, conducting research on a full-time basis. There is also the possibility for renewal for a second full year (July 2021 through June 2022), based on funding and satisfactory performance. Fellows who are renewed may be offered the opportunity to teach or co-teach a course during their second year. Teaching opportunities will be subject to sufficient course enrollments and must be approved for the Dean of the Faculty. When teaching, fellows will hold the additional rank of Lecturer. Fellows who are renewed for a second year have the possibility of spending up to two months at the Princeton Athens Center conducting research during Summer 2021.(June-July 2021)

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 postdoctoral 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.
