The Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships: (1) The Hannah Seeger Davis Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies and (2) The Mary Seeger O’Boyle Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Hellenic Studies. These fellowships are awarded annually on a competitive basis. Typically, four to six such fellowships are awarded in any year. Scholars in all disciplines of the humanities and the social sciences are eligible to apply. There is one online application form for these fellowships.

Terms of the Fellowships

  • Fellows will be appointed as Postdoctoral Research Associates for September 2022 through June 2023, conducting research on a full-time basis.
  • There is also the possibility for renewal for a second full year (July 2023 through June 2024), based on funding and performance.
    • Fellows who are renewed may be offered the opportunity to teach or co-teach a course during their second year.
    • Teaching opportunities will be subject to sufficient course enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty. When teaching, fellows will hold the additional rank of Lecturer.
    • Fellows who are renewed for a second year have the possibility of spending up to two months at the Princeton Athens Center, conducting research during Wintersession 2024 and/or Summer 2024 (June–July 2024).

These fellowships are intended for scholars in Hellenic Studies, with a special emphasis on Modern Greek Studies, Byzantine Studies, or Late Antique Studies, including their relation to the Classical tradition. The goal of this postdoctoral research fellowship program is to advance the scholarship of outstanding Hellenists at an early stage of their career and thus to strengthen the field of post-Classical Greek Studies in the United States and abroad.

The monthly salary will be $5,200 (gross) for the first year. Fellows may apply for reimbursement (up to $3,000 per academic year) for research-related expenses (such as purchase of books or copyediting of scholarly work) or travel expenses when presenting a paper at an academic conference during the period of their appointment. Fellows are responsible for their own travel, moving arrangements, and expenses, as well as finding and paying for their housing at Princeton. A few weeks prior to departure, fellows are required to submit a report on their scholarly activities at Princeton.
