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.

Deadline: November 1 2016.
