The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs (WWS) at Princeton University invites outstanding scholars and distinguished policy practitioners to apply for an appointment as a Gruss-Lipper Visiting Scholar in Middle East Policy Studies during the 2012-13 academic year.

The successful candidates will devote an academic year or a semester in residence at Princeton to engage in teaching, research, discussions, and scholarly collaborations. Applications are welcome from Middle East scholars or policy practitioners with a variety of interests, including political, economic, scientific, demographic or legal issues of importance to the Middle East. The Gruss-Lipper Visiting Scholar will participate in activities of WWS, including faculty-graduate seminars, workshops, and public lectures, and enjoy access to a wide range of other activities throughout the University. Scholars devote a portion of their time to research and writing on issues related to Middle East policy. The Gruss-Lipper Scholar will also teach in one of Princeton’s graduate or undergraduate programs, subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty. Although most Scholars will stay for the entire academic year (September through June), applications for a single semester will be considered. Two types of applicants will be considered: highly respected academics visiting from other institutions, and distinguished policy practitioners.

The program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but it does not support work toward the completion of a degree. PhD or equivalent is required. Rank, salary and duty times are negotiable, and depend on the applicant’s experience as well as other sources of support.

To apply, please submit online a cover letter, a CV, writing samples, and contact information for two recommendations at at
