Job Description







Visiting Research Scholar - Fung Global Fellows Program
Princeton University


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 six 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.

Fellowships are awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who are expected to return to their positions, and who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but who are still early in their careers.

During the academic year 2018-19, the Fung Global Fellows Program theme will be “Interdependence.” Food, clothes, entertainment, and the security and health of the planet depend on what distant people do for, with, and against others. Sometimes, recognition of interdependence has led to cooperation, other times to conquest or competition, and frequently to a mixture of all three. Oftentimes, new social identities and movements, national, regional, and religious, emerge in response to rising interdependence and the convergences and inequities it has produced.

The goal of the 2018-19 Fung Global Fellows cohort will be to explore the ways people learned to rely on or to reject strangers far away, as well as to imagine how global relationships came to be and could be different.

We invite applications from scholars whose work addresses this topic in any historical period or world region and from any disciplinary background.

Job Requirements

Preferred and Required Qualifications as appropriate for the fellowship.

Information and Application Process Instructions

Applications are due on November 20, 2017.

To be eligible, applicants must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2008.

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 ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.

For more information on eligibility requirements and the application process, see http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/.
