Visiting IT Policy Fellow

Each academic year, we issue a call for fellows to apply to spend up to a year at CITP. Fellows are a critical part of the Center’s intellectual life, and participate in many activities throughout the year. The yearly application process opens in the fall of each year. 

The Center for Information Technology Policy is an interdisciplinary research center at Princeton University that sits at the crossroads of engineering, the social sciences, law, and policy. CITP seeks candidates at all levels for our Visiting IT Policy Fellow appointments. These are typically nine-month appointments, commencing on or about September 1. We are happy to hear from anyone working at the intersection of digital technology and public life, including experts in computer science, sociology, economics, law, political science, public policy, information studies, communication, and other related disciplines. At this time, we have a particular interest in candidates working on issues related to Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.

Visiting IT Policy Fellows must be in-residence and on leave from a full-time position while at CITP. Visiting IT Policy Fellows will conduct research and engage in the Center’s public programs.

Applicants must apply online and the link will be provided here when the application process is open, which is generally in the fall of every year. Please submit a current curriculum vitae, a research plan, and a cover letter describing your background, interest in the program, and salary requirements, noting any support you will be receiving during that period, such as sabbatical funding. You will be able to upload all these documents online through the application link. Preference will be given to applicants who have a current or past professorship in a related field.

Please see our fellows’ webpage for a list of our current fellows. An advanced degree is required.

If you have any questions about this position or the application process, please feel free to contact us at . All offers and appointments are subject to review and approval by the Dean of the Faculty.

Please note that references will only be contacted if you have been interviewed and are one of the finalists for the position.
