Lecturer and Princeton Arts Fellow

  • No Fee to Submit
  • Requisition No D-21-LCA-00006

Princeton Arts Fellows, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, film makers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community. The department is committed to fostering an academic environment that acknowledges and encourages diversity and differences. The successful candidate will pursue academic excellence in diverse, multicultural, and inclusive settings.

Fellowships are for two academic years. An $86,000 salary for each year is included. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 at Princeton, interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but Fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Applicants are not required to have prior teaching experience and although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

This Fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

Please Note: Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, September 14, 2021, 5:00 p.m. EST online at https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/index.xhtml and refer to Requisition D-21-LCA-00006.

Submit a curriculum vitae, a statement about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, contact information for three references (should the search committee choose to contact references, please do not request letters or have letters sent in advance of a request from the search committee), and work samples (i.e., a writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.). You are also encouraged to submit an optional diversity and inclusion statement as part of your application package.

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a lifetime.
