Membership, The School of Historical Studies

Deadline: October 15, 2021 12:00 am

Source: The Institute for Advanced Study

Description: The Institute for Advanced Study is an independent private institution founded in 1930 to create a community of scholars focused on intellectual inquiry, free from teaching and other university obligations. Each year scholars from around the world apply to come to the Institute to pursue their own research. Those who are chosen are offered a membership for a set period. Members receive access to the extensive resources of the Institute, including offices, access to libraries, subsidized restaurant and housing facilities, and some secretarial services. The School of Historical Studies supports scholarship in all fields of historical research, but is concerned principally with the history of western, near eastern and Asian civilizations, with particular emphasis upon Greek and Roman civilization, the history of Europe (medieval, early modern, and modern), the Islamic world, East Asian studies, art history, the history of science, and late modern history with a special emphasis on the history of international relations. Members are required to remain in residence in Princeton during term time. Members’ only other obligation is to pursue their own research. If they wish, they may participate in seminars and meetings within the Institute, and there are ample opportunities for contacts with scholars at nearby universities.

Award: Institute stipends will normally be offered up to a maximum of $78,000 for the full academic year, or $39,000 for one term. Stipends may be supplemented by other grants, including sabbatical salaries, but if the total exceeds the salary at the time of application the Institute stipend will be reduced accordingly. Scholars with full sabbatical funding, other grants, retirement funding, or other means may apply for a non-stipendiary membership. 

Eligibility: Eligibility requirements include a substantial record of publication and a PhD awarded by no later than December 31, 2020. Qualified candidates of any nationality are invited to apply. Scholars are not required to have a current institutional affiliation.
