2013-14 Fellowship and Postdoc Applications

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

CITP seeks Fellowship and Postdoc applicants for the 2012-2013 school year from academia, industry, government, and civil society. These are one year appointments — usually from July 1st to June 30th. 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 current and past fellows to get a sense for 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 and postdoctoral researchers. Many of our fellows are also on paid sabbatical from their own institutions or provide their own outside funding.

For full consideration applications should be received by January 1, 2013. 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. To apply, please go to jobs.princeton.edu and click on “Search Open Positions”. Visiting Fellow or Researcher applicants (i.e. visiting from an existing institution/organization) use requisition number 1200789. Postdoctoral Research Associate applicants, use requisition number 1200790. (If accepted, postdocs will be required to show proof of Ph.D. before their start date.) If you have any questions or concerns about this program or the application process, please feel free to contact us at

In addition to our annual Fellows, CITP is soliciting candidates for a new Visiting Professor position starting in Fall 2013. Visiting Professor candidates must be currently appointed faculty at an academic institution. For more details, see the CITP Visiting Professor Application.
