Job Details

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. Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and the social sciences are eligible to apply.


The appointment is from September 2023 through June 2024. There is the possibility for renewal for a second full year, contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance. Salary and full employee benefits are offered in accordance with University guidelines. Candidates must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by February 1, 2023. Candidates must have less than 3 years post-Ph.D. work experience.


The monthly salary will be $5,400 (gross) for the first year. Fellows may apply for reimbursement (up to $3,000 per academic year) for research-related expenses. Fellows are responsible for their own travel, moving arrangements, and expenses, as well as finding and paying for their housing at Princeton.


During the second-year appointment, fellows have the possibility of spending up to three weeks at the Princeton Athens Center, conducting research during the summer (June/July) and/or Princeton’s winter session. Travel grants will be available via application. If awarded, the grant will cover reasonable expenses and lodging during the time at the Princeton Athens Center. 


Selected candidates will be required to conduct research on a full-time basis and demonstrate to the Seeger Center's satisfaction the ability to be on campus on a daily basis and fulfill responsibilities relating to in-person participation.


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.


Candidates must apply online at  and submit (1) a cover letter with title and summary (200 words) of proposed research project; (2) research proposal (five pages; 2,000 words), including a detailed description of project, timetable, explicit goals, selected bibliography, and the reason it is proposed to be pursued at Princeton; (3) curriculum vitae with list of publications; (4) sample chapter (in English) of dissertation or other recent work; (5) names and contact information of three referees from individuals who are not current members of the Princeton University faculty; (6) a scanned copy of their doctoral degree or a letter from a dean or registrar-level officer on department letterhead confirming the date of completion of all the requirements for the doctoral degree; (7) all non-US citizens and non-US permanent residents are required to provide TOEFL results or a letter from their department head on department letterhead confirming certification of language proficiency in English. With the exception of official transcripts, all submitted documents must be in English.


DEADLINE: All materials submitted by applicants must be received by 11:59 pm EST on January 4, 2023. Awards will be announced in early March 2023. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
