Position description

The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate appointment. A doctorate in Economics, History, Politics, Public Policy, Social Policy, Sociology, or related discipline is required. A focus on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or other identity-based research and the interaction with policy issues is highly preferred. The ideal candidate is an individual who enjoys teaching in addition to research, and in particular enjoys cross-disciplinary engagement. In addition to carrying out his or her own research, the appointee will help run a new spring semester course to be offered to masters students, called "Power, Identity, and Policy" that is anticipated to enroll 30 to 40 students. Tasks involve working in conjunction with two faculty members to: 1) create policy modules and group assignments for the course; 2) develop readings; 3) develop a potential class trip; 4) serve as a resource for students during the spring semester, for example by providing ongoing feedback to written work and office hours. Any teaching is contingent on sufficient enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty. When teaching, the successful candidate will hold the additional rank of Lecturer. Postdoctoral Research Associates are expected to participate actively in the intellectual activities of Princeton University.
