Institute for Advanced Studies: Opportunities for 2017-2018

The Institute 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.  Scholars from around the world come to the Institute to pursue their own research.  Candidates of any nationality may apply for a single term or a full academic year.  Scholars may apply for a stipend, and again for the 2017-18 academic year we will be offering a John Elliott membership to support a scholar pursuing research in the history and culture of Early Modern Spain.  Those with sabbatical funding, other grants, retirement funding or other means are also invited to apply for a non-stipendiary membership.  Some short-term visitorships (for less than a full term, and without stipend) are also available on an ad-hoc basis.  Beyond the John Elliott membership noted above, scholars in all fields of historical research are welcome to apply for membership.  The principal interests of the School of Historical Studies are 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 philosophy, modern international relations, and music studies, but each year some scholars are selected in other fields of historical research.   Residence in Princeton during term time is required.  The only other obligation of Members is to pursue their own research.  The Ph.D. (or equivalent) and substantial publications are required.  Further information about the John Elliott membership can be found on the web at: https://www.hs.ias.edu/John%20Elliott%20Membership.  The full announcement of our membership program can be viewed the web at http://www.hs.ias.edu/mem_announcement.  Inquiries sent by post should be addressed to the School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Einstein Dr., Princeton, N.J. 08540 (E-mail address: mzelazny@ias.edu). Deadline: November 1 2016.

Olivia Remie Constable Fund

The friends and family of Olivia Remie Constable invite you to join them in establishing the Olivia Remie Constable Award for junior, adjunct and unaffiliated scholars, to be presented annually in her memory. Remie was a consummate scholar who was aware that gaps in funding exist for emerging scholars. The Constable Award, which will be administered by the Medieval Academy of America, will be awarded annually to an emerging junior faculty member, adjunct or unaffiliated scholar (broadly understood: post-doctoral, pre-tenure) for research and travel. The award is meant to reflect the high standards of Remie’s scholarship as well as her broader interdisciplinary interests in Medieval Studies (as exemplified by her teaching, her leadership, and her service to the discipline). Remie’s family agree that this award will be an appropriate and effective way to honor her memory.  Click here for more information and to donate.
