Princeton University - University Center for Human Values,
Princeton,
USA
September 7, 2016
Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellow
October 31, 2016

The University Center for Human Values invites applications for Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellowships for the academic year 2017-18. Fellows devote an academic year in residence at Princeton to research and writing about topics involving human values in public and private life. The program is open to scholars in all disciplines provided their research plans qualify. In recent years fellows have been drawn from fields including philosophy, political theory, literature, history, classics, economics and law, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive.
Fellows are expected to reside in or around Princeton and to be active contributors to the intellectual life of the Center. This includes participating in a weekly seminar attended by fellows and Center faculty to discuss work in progress and in various other seminars, colloquia and lectures sponsored by the Center. Fellows enjoy access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University.
Candidates should have a doctorate or equivalent professional degree and a strong record of research publications appropriate to their career stage. Typically Fellows hold faculty positions at other universities or colleges; in exceptional cases we consider applications from independent scholars when there is a high level of scholarly achievement. This is not a post-doctoral fellowship program and we do not generally consider candidates who will have held the Ph.D. for less than two years at the time of appointment.
The fellowship period extends from September 1 to July 1. Fellows normally receive stipends of up to one-half their academic-year salaries (subject to a minimum and maximum set each fall). Ordinarily their home institutions provide a portion of their salaries in addition to all benefits, although this is not a requirement for appointment. Stipends for independent scholars will not exceed the maximum for fellows holding appointments elsewhere.
The main considerations in the evaluation of applications are the following:
• The significance of the proposed research and its relevance to the purposes of the University Center for Human Values (see http://uchv.princeton.edu/ for more information);
• The quality of a candidate’s previous research and the contribution the candidate is likely to make in the future through teaching and writing;
• The likelihood that the research would benefit from being conducted in the University Center environment.

HOW TO APPLY
Candidates should submit an online application at http://jobs.princeton.edu. Search for requisition number #1600504. The following materials will be required:
1. A curriculum vitae;
2. A scholarly paper (of no more than about 12,000 words) written in the past three years;
3. A statement (of no more than 1,500 words) describing the proposed research project and including a brief working title for the project; and
4. Contact information for three referees, including at least one who was not a graduate advisor. Referees will be contacted directly with instructions for uploading letters of reference.
These materials should be submitted online by Monday, October 31, 2016. We do not accept application materials by any other method. Letters of reference are to be submitted by November 3. The selection committee begins reviewing applications immediately and incomplete applications may be at a disadvantage. Decisions are expected to be announced by March 1, 2017.
Princeton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Teaching is primarily in English, though bilingual Arabic/English will be highly regarded. Competence in, experience with, and a willingness to use new technologies in teaching are highly desirable.
