Visiting Research Fellowships in Hellenic Studies, 2014-2015
The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, Princeton University
Deadline: 3 February 2014
The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for a limited number of Stanley J. Seeger Visiting Research Fellowships in Hellenic Studies for scholars in humanities, writers, or artists from Greece and other overseas countries (i.e., not the United States or Canada) who wish to spend time in residence at Princeton pursuing independent research projects, free of teaching and other obligations.
These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and normally offered annually. Awardees will be appointed for one term, rank contingent on credentials, pursuing research on a full-time basis. Visiting fellowships are available for the fall or spring terms, or during the summer months as described below. On occasion, shorter term appointments may be possible for writers-in-residence or artists-in-residence, or scholars who have been prior recipients of a visiting research fellowship or other Hellenic Studies fellowship at Princeton University.
Fall term appointments are from September 1, 2014 to December 15, 2014 (3 ½ months). Spring term appointments are from January 15, 2015 to May 30, 2015 (4 ½ months). Summer appointments are from June 15, 2015 to August 15, 2015 (2 months). The lengths and terms of the appointment will be determined by the Committee on Hellenic Studies. These fellowships are residential and, as such, fellows (as University employees) are required to be at Princeton at all times, devoting the major portion of their time to research and writing. They are required to participate in Hellenic Studies activities and the intellectual life of the University. They present their work-in-progress at Hellenic Studies workshops and are encouraged to meet colleagues in their respective academic disciplines. They enjoy full access to the University’s library, archival, and computing resources. Fellows are provided shared workspace at the Hellenic Studies office, as well as access to the Hellenic Studies Reading Room in the University Library. No secretarial services or office supplies are available to fellows. Computing support is available through the University’s Office of Information Technology. Before their departure, fellows are required to submit a report on their scholarly activities at Princeton.
