The Center for Information Technology Policy is an interdisciplinary research center at Princeton that sits at the crossroads of engineering, the social sciences, law, and policy.

CITP seeks applicants for Visiting Fellow appointments for the 2014-2015 year. These are one-year appointments, normally commencing on July 1. We are happy to hear from anyone who works at the intersection of digital technology and public life, including computer science, sociology, public policy, engineering, economics, law, and civil service. Please see our list of current and past fellows to get a sense of the type of fellow we seek. The successful applicant will hold a doctorate degree, will conduct research, engage in public programs, and may teach a seminar during their appointment, subject to the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.

The Center has secured limited resources from a range of sources to support fellows. Many of our fellows are also on paid sabbatical from their own institutions or provide some or all of their own outside funding.

Applicants must apply online. The application process calls for a current curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your background and interest in the program, and a statement of your research plan. For full consideration applications should be received by January 15, 2014. To apply, please go to jobs.princeton.edu and click on “Search Open Positions,” requisition number 1300794.
