Types of Fellowships
There are three types of Tikvah fellowships: post-doctoral fellows, research fellows, and teaching fellows (all of which are detailed below). All fellows will write and/or teach on topics of Jewish Thought.
Jewish Thought is defined here very broadly to include any relevant time period, figure, or topic. We aim to appoint fellows who are interested in grappling with the great human questions from a Jewish perspective and committed to bringing Jewish ideas and thinkers into conversation with the broader historical, philosophical, and theological traditions of the West and beyond. The fellows will be integrated fully into the Program in Judaic Studies as well as into any and all appropriate departments, programs, and centers at Princeton University.
The Tikvah Post-Doctoral Fellow(s) will pursue research half-time and teach one course of his/her design each semester. This is a one-year position with the possibility of renewal for up to three years.
The Tikvah Research Fellow(s) will devote the major portion of his/her time to research and writing. Fellows normally receive stipends of up to one half of their academic year salaries.
The Tikvah Teaching Fellow(s) will teach one course each term at Princeton, one of which may be a freshman seminar on Jewish thought and a broad humanistic theme, the other of which may be an undergraduate or graduate seminar taught or co-taught with an appropriate member of Princeton’s faculty in Judaic Studies.
