Position: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Description: The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) at Princeton University is pleased to introduce a groundbreaking fellowship program. As a leading global institution in interdisciplinary research on international issues, PIIRS is dedicated to advancing innovative scholarship that addresses the world's most pressing challenges. The PIIRS Postdoctoral Fellows Program is integral to that mission. We will award multiple postdoctoral fellowships to our inaugural cohort in 2025-2026, recent PhDs in the Social Sciences who have demonstrated exceptional scholarship, congruent with the Institute's intellectual focus, that simultaneously advances theoretical debates in their disciplinary field; creatively speaks to and engages with a multidisciplinary audience; and deepens substantive regional knowledge of specific places. Appointments are for one year (12 months) with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. Fellows must reside on campus during the academic year to fully engage with PIIRS and university activities. Leveraging Princeton's scholarly resources, fellows will focus on research, expand their intellectual horizons, and prepare work for publication. They will have biweekly meetings with the faculty director to share their work, and monthly meetings with faculty fellows from various social sciences to present their work and learn from others. Fellows are also encouraged to engage with colleagues and attend departmental seminars. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding scholarly achievement and promise. To be eligible, applicants generally cannot have more than one year of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, at the beginning of the academic year on September 1, 2025. The postdoctoral selection will be made based on the strength of the candidates' scholarly record; the promise of the proposed research; and the ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the postdoctoral program (with interest in connecting with other PIIRS and Princeton departments on campus). In addition to a competitive salary, benefits, and housing subsidy, the program will provide the Fellow with the opportunity to host a small, pre-publication, book workshop; and a research fund of $4,000 per year.
