Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellowships in the study of the Middle East since the First World War. The Department hopes to make two appointments for two academic years each, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. Applicants must have the Ph.D. in hand; discipline is open. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the life of the Department in several ways (convening a seminar on the modern Middle East, organizing occasional small conferences, teaching a limited number of courses, advising some undergraduates in their independent work, and participating in outreach activities). However, the bulk of their time is to be devoted to research and publication, and to broadening their knowledge of the Middle East, including its pre-modern heritage where this is relevant to their research interests. Competitive salary plus benefits; each appointee will have a small research fund.
To apply, send a current c.v., a two-page personal statement, a three-page description of the research and writing projects in which you would engage while at Princeton, and two sample papers or chapters. Additional information about this position can be found from the Princeton human resources page.
