The Industrial Relations Section (IRS) and the Department of Economics invite applications for IRS Visiting Research Scholars for the academic year 2021-2022. The Visitors will spend the academic year at Princeton and will be given office space and the opportunity to pursue their own research on any topic in labor economics. A small fund for research expenses will be included.
Visitors may participate in the University's teaching program depending on departmental need and if mutually agreed, with sufficient course enrollments, and with the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
Visiting scholars from academic institutions often receive up to one-half their academic-year salaries from their home institutions for the appointment period. The amount that Princeton contributes to the scholar's salary is based on the financial support provided by their home institution. Selected candidates will be asked to indicate, or provide written authorization for Princeton to confirm, what percentage of financial support their home institution and other sources are likely to provide during their visit, if any, and to submit a confidential statement indicating salary for the current academic year (September 2020 - July 1, 2021) or provide written authorization for Princeton to confirm their salary.
Applicants must apply online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/17861 and submit a cover letter, CV, research paper or book chapter, and a brief (1-2 page) research statement. Applications are welcome from individuals who will be on leave from full-time positions at universities or research institutions during the 2021-2022 academic year. Ph.D. is required.
This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
