They are requested to give a presentation about their work, and fully participate in the Humanities Institute’s seminar programs and activities. Read more and apply.
Applications due on November 18, 2022 (11:59pm EST). Fung Global Fellows Program, Princeton University: Academic Year 2023-24.
Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the program selects scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Candidates will be considered in two categories: (1) Postdoctoral research associates who received their doctorate from an institution outside of the United States and who, at the time of application, do not hold a tenure-track faculty appointment; (2) Early-career scholars employed outside the United States who have a faculty appointment, a professional research appointment, or are an established independent scholar in the designated theme of the program. Early-career scholars will be appointed at the rank of Visiting Research Scholar. The number of candidates hired will depend on the qualifications of the overall applicant pools.
For the academic year 2023-24 and the third year in a row, the theme of Fung Global Fellows Program is “Sustainable Futures.” The program welcomes applicants from all disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields, including social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences, engineering, technology, law, architecture, and humanities, who analyze the sustainability of current systems and practices in light of historic, contemporary, and future challenges, with an eye on innovative and feasible changes that promise greater sustainability going into the future. The search committee will be particularly interested in applicants whose research plans align with at least one of many related ongoing research activities at Princeton, either at PIIRS or another academic unit. For more information about the theme of study, please see this link: http://piirs.princeton.edu/funggfp/about/annual-research-topics.
To be eligible, post-doctoral applicants must have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. September 1, 2023 but cannot have more than two years of postdoctoral experience prior to the start of the appointment, September 1, 2023. If a postdoctoral candidate has turned in a final draft of their dissertation but not yet completed their Ph.D. before the start date, they may be temporarily appointed as a Senior Research Assistant with a 10% reduction in salary until providing verification of their Ph.D. degree. Early-career scholars must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent no earlier than September 1, 2013. Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate’s proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the program theme, the candidate’s scholarly record, and the ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program.

Early-career scholars may apply at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/27225
Deadline for applications: 28 November, 2022. Chancellor’s Fellowships – College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Edinburgh.
Chancellors Fellowships are 5-year tenure track fellowships, designed to provide talented early career researchers with the support required to develop into a leading research-active academic at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK).
The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is appointing up to 10 Chancellor’s Fellows, who will have a strong track record of innovative research, teaching and/or knowledge exchange, and the potential to make an outstanding contribution to furthering the University’s and the College’s strategic goals.
Applications are welcome from researchers from any discipline represented in the College, working on any topic of research. We particularly welcome researchers working across different disciplines, and who have experience of/demonstrable potential to lead interdisciplinary initiatives. While we invite applications from all disciplines and areas, in order to help realise the University and College research strategy, we particularly welcome applicants who can make a key contribution to interdisciplinary research and innovation in three College priority research themes (with potential for collaboration within the College and across the University’s three Colleges):
Applicants will be based in one of the 11 Schools in the College. Please indicate which School you think your research/teaching aligns with most closely in your application and the reasons why. Where relevant, you may mention more than one School, or indicate that your research aligns with more than one College.
Given the particular barriers facing female researchers and those from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups, the scheme aims to appoint at least 50% female and 20% BAME applicants. We therefore particularly encourage applications from these groups. We also encourage applications from those with non-traditional career paths, including those returning from a period of parental leave, or those who have moved to academia from a career in another sector.
Deadline: January 11, 2023, at 5:00pm EST. Harvard University Environmental Fellows Program
HUCE created the Environmental Fellows program to enable recent doctorate recipients to use and expand Harvard’s extraordinary resources to tackle complex environmental issues. Fellows work for two years with Harvard faculty members in any school or department to form a community of researchers that strengthens connections across the University.
The Award: The fellowship includes a salary of $83,000 per year, employee health insurance eligibility, up to $2,500 reimbursement for relocation expenses, and a $2,500 annual allowance for travel and other professional expenses. The Environmental Fellows Program is open to anyone with a doctorate or comparable terminal degree awarded between May 2019 and August 2023. HUCE expects to award approximately six fellowships for the 2023 cohort. HUCE organizes a co-curricular program to ensure that the fellows get to know each other and each other’s work. All fellows join in biweekly dinners along with Harvard faculty and a speaker from amongst the Harvard faculty.
Applicant’s prior academic and professional success and their potential contribution to scholarship or practice
Project proposals are carefully evaluated by a committee of HUCE faculty. The proposed project should represent an independent line of inquiry, clearly extending beyond the candidate’s PhD work as well as the host’s ongoing research. The relevance of the proposed work for addressing environmental issues, along with demonstration of excellent potential for intellectual achievement, are critical factors in the selection process.
The selection committee will select a group of fellows in 2023 who will complement those selected last year, creating a group of approximately a dozen scholars with a diverse set of academic interests, skills, and backgrounds. Recipients—and hosts—may include people with degrees in the sciences, economics, law, government, public policy, public health, medicine, design, and the full array of humanities. Their research topics will be equally varied.
Harvard candidates: those receiving terminal degrees from Harvard and post-docs currently working at Harvard are eligible for the fellowship provided their research and host arrangements take them in new directions that are significantly distinct from their PhD research and forge new connections within the University. Harvard candidates should not propose to continue to work with the same professors or groups with whom they are currently associated, nor should their proposal be an extenuation of their current work.
Interdisciplinary research projects are encouraged, although this is not a requirement for the fellowship, and candidates with interests in a single discipline are also encouraged to apply.
Host’s commitment: Further important considerations are the host faculty member’s enthusiasm for the proposed project and fellow, the host’s ability to mentor the fellow, and their ability to provide office space and a productive work environment.
Interview: A select group of applicants will be asked to further discuss their proposal over video with the selection committee.
Application materials must be received by 11:59 pm (EST) on February 1, 2023. The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (UCHI) invites applications for 2023–24 residential fellowships.
