The Economic Theory Center has two fellowship programs: the Visiting Research Scholar Program and the Postdoctoral Research Associate Program. Learn more about current fellows and how to apply.
Visiting Research Scholars must be employed at an academic institution other than Princeton University during their visit. Postdoctoral Research Associates are scholars who obtained their PhD degree or other advanced degree within the past three years, and who will not be employed by another institution during their stay at Princeton. Fellows in both programs devote an academic year or a semester in residence at Princeton to pursue their own research on any topic within economic theory. Advertisements for this program can be viewed in the American Economic Association – JOE.
All applicants should submit an application online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions. For Post Doctoral Research Associate position use Requisition Number D-21-ECO-00011; In light of the ongoing pandemic, we are not currently accepting applications for the Visiting Associate Research Scholar position.
