Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellows are poised to become leaders in their fields, said Dean of the Faculty Gene Jarrett, who called the fellows program “an outstanding demonstration of Princeton’s ability to attract the most promising researchers from all sectors of society and all parts of the world.”

The Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellows program is intended to recognize and support outstanding scholars who have been historically and are presently underrepresented in the academy or in certain disciplines. Financial support is provided for up to two years at full salary.
