Visiting Research Scholar


The Department of African American Studies at Princeton University invites applications from faculty (particularly those who are pre-tenure with at least one year of teaching experience in your current position) in all disciplines for up to two visiting research scholar positions. In rare cases, independent scholars will also be considered. These positions will be awarded for the academic year 2024-2025 to emerging scholars who will devote their residency at Princeton to writing about race in the national or global contexts and, with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty, to teaching one semester-long undergraduate course. Teaching opportunities will be subject to sufficient course enrollments, and when teaching, the successful candidate will carry a secondary teaching rank. Ph.D. in relevant discipline required.

 

Postdoctoral Research Associate
The Department of African American Studies at Princeton University invites applications from recent Ph.D. graduates (within the last four years) in all disciplines for up to two
postdoctoral research positions. These positions will be awarded for the academic year 2024-2025 to emerging scholars who do NOT hold an academic appointment elsewhere, and who will devote their residency at Princeton to writing about race in the national or global contexts and, with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty, to teaching one semester-long undergraduate course. Teaching opportunities will be subject to sufficient course enrollments, and when teaching, the successful candidate will hold the additional
rank of Lecturer. Ph.D. in relevant discipline required, with the degree completed no later than Spring 2024 and no earlier than 2021.

Visitors are expected to participate with department faculty members and affiliated graduate students in a seminar devoted to the discussion of work in progress. In addition, they will be invited to participate in other programs, including seminars, colloquia, and public lectures and will enjoy access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University. Applicants cannot be in the process of writing a dissertation at the time of appointment. The term for these positions is anticipated to extend from on or about September 1, 2024 until June 1, 2025; a competitive salary will be provided.
