CSDP Visiting Scholars and Postdocs
Princeton University's Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP) seeks visiting scholars and/or post-doctoral or more senior research associates for the 2016-2017 academic year. The Center supports empirical research on democratic political processes and institutions. Applications are welcome from political scientists and scholars in related social science disciplines at any career stage, but any applicant who has yet to complete the PhD must have turned in a final draft of the dissertation at the time of appointment.
Each scholar will pursue research and contribute to the intellectual life of the Center, the Department of Politics, and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. CSDP scholars must be in residence at Princeton during the academic terms, and are expected to participate in the weekly CSDP seminars and related research seminars in the Department of Politics, as well as occasional lectures, conferences, and other events. Successful candidates will receive a competitive salary (those who hold faculty appointments at other academic institutions normally receive one-half their academic-year salaries for the appointment period, but this may vary depending on level of support from the home institution), applicable Princeton University benefits, a taxable moving allowance, and a research fund.
Please note that (only) candidates who currently hold faculty appointments and are applying to visit CSDP for 2016-2017 while on leave from their current institution must apply directly to CSDP at http://www.princeton.edu/csdp/apply/ . Letters of recommendation are not required for applicants who currently hold faculty positions. All others must apply online to the Jobs at Princeton website at https://jobs.princeton.edu -- Requisition #1500715 and submit a CV, a 3-5 page (double-spaced) statement of research interest/research proposal, a writing sample, and the names and email addresses of two references (and no more than two). A cover letter is optional. The deadline for receipt of complete applications, including letters of recommendation from those references, is December 1, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Questions?
