Visiting Fellowships, Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities, 2015-2016

The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities is pleased to announce three available fellowships for the 2015-16 academic year. There will be two Mellon Fellows hired for the entire year and one Distinguished Mellon Fellow brought to campus for a semester (which can be extended to a year’s residency with outside, non-Princeton support). Mellon Fellows may be from any discipline. We seek applicants with outstanding intellectual, literary, and visual talents who demonstrate an abiding interest in multi-disciplinary work focused on the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and the humanities. Scholars, writers, critics, artists, filmmakers, and practitioners of exceptional promise are encouraged to apply. Fellows may have the opportunity to teach or assist in teaching a multidisciplinary course at Princeton, and will help shape the Princeton-Mellon Forum for Research on the Urban Environment and other program initiatives while on campus.

Please submit a cover letter, CV, 1,000 word description of a proposed research project, 500 word description of a proposed course, a list of potential events/works/projects, potential department/program/school affiliation, and contact information for three references to http://jobs.princeton.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=66007 by January 15, 2015.

The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities is a three-year interdisciplinary program supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that combines the efforts of a diverse group of faculty, programs, and schools to develop a more dynamic and nuanced understanding of urban issues today. The program’s thematic focus is “Cities of the Americas: Architecture, Society, Policy, and Culture.” The Initiative spans the 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17 academic years.
