Princeton Fellowship in LGBT Studies
Five three-year Postdoctoral Fellowships (including the Fellowship in LGBT Studies) will be awarded this year. The stipend for academic year 2011-12 will be approximately $72,000. Fellows are provided with a shared office, a personal computer, a research account of $5000 a year, and access to university grants, benefits and other resources.
Fellows are expected to reside in or near Princeton during the academic year in order that they can attend weekly seminars and participate fully in the intellectual life of the Society.
Fund for Reunion, Inc., the LGBT Alumni Association of Princeton University, and the Society of Fellows are co-sponsors of a three-year postdoctoral fellowship to be awarded to a scholar working on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender issues in any of the disciplines represented in the Society, and particularly in new and emerging fields.
The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to pursue research in any scholarly areas that will make a positive contribution toward public discourse around contemporary LGBT issues. The successful candidate is required to teach one course each semester for the first two years and normally does some advising in his/her specialty or related areas. In the third year, the fellow
teaches only one course and devotes the final semester to full-time research.
The LGBT fellow is also encouraged to share research interests with the wider campus community, with the aim of creating a sustained dialogue on issues related to LGBT equality.
