Visiting Research Scholar- Research Program in Development Studies
Woodrow Wilson School - 285
The Research Program in Development Studies (RPDS), part of the Woodrow Wilson School, invites outstanding researchers to apply for visiting appointments. Visitors will be appointed as either Visiting Associate Research Scholars or Visiting Research Scholars depending on their rank in the home institution.
RPDS supports research on all aspects of economic development. Successful candidates will devote an academic year or a semester in residence at Princeton to research, discussions, and scholarly collaborations. Successful applicants must hold a PhD in economics.
Visiting Research Scholars participate in activities of RPDS, including faculty-graduate seminars, workshops, and public lectures, and enjoy access to a wide range of other activities throughout the University. Scholars devote the major portion of their time to research and writing on issues related to health and wellbeing. Some Scholars may also have the opportunity to teach in one of Princeton's graduate or undergraduate programs. Any teaching is contingent on sufficient enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty. Although most Scholars will stay for the entire academic year (September through June), applications for a single semester or a portion of a semester will be considered.
The program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but it does not support work toward the completion of a degree.
Salaries are based on the salary in effect at the Scholar's home institution. Scholars from academic institutions normally receive up to one-half their academic-year salaries from their home institutions for the appointment period. A supplement may be paid to Scholars who teach a course.
Applicants are evaluated on the basis of (1) the quality of their achievements in their field of specialization and their ability to benefit from the activities of RPDS; (2) the significance of their proposed contribution to RPDS's mission; and (3) the contribution they are likely to make to research in the future.
Apply online at https://jobs.princeton.edu. and submit a cover letter, a CV, a research paper, book chapter, or a dissertation chapter; a statement of no more than 1,500 words describing how you plan to use your time at Princeton; and a confidential statement indicating your current 12-month salary and what sources of financial support you are likely to have during your visit.
The deadline for submission is April 15, 2012. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications in May 2012.
