Fellowships at Princeton International Economics Section

The International Economics Section and the Department of Economics operate two fellowship programs in International Economics.

  • The Peter B. Kenen Fellowship, named in honor of our esteemed former colleague, Peter B. Kenen, provides an opportunity for those holding full-time positions in a university or research organization to spend a leave year in the Section.
  • IES (Postdoctoral) Fellowships are available to those who have recently completed their Ph.D. degree or will do so before arriving in Princeton.

Both Kenen Fellows and IES Fellows are expected to spend a full academic year as visitors in the Section.  Fellows conduct their own research on topics in international economics and participate in the intellectual life of the department.  They receive a fixed stipend, a package of benefits, and a modest allocation for research expenses.  More senior fellows may combine the fellowship support with other sources of funding to replace up to the full amount of their academic-year salaries at their home institutions.

Applications for the Kenen Fellowship and the IES Fellowship should be submitted online through AHire. Applicants for the Kenen Fellowship should submit a curriculum vitae, the names and contact information for two references, and a statement of 750 words or less describing the research they would undertake while visiting Princeton. Applicants for IES (Postdoctoral) Fellowships should submit a curriculum vitae and their job-market paper or papers.  In addition, these applicants should have three confidential letters of recommendation uploaded to the Jobs website.

Applications for the Kenen Fellowship are due by January 15, 2018. Applications for the Post-Doc will be considered until the positions are filled, but the applications will be reviewed beginning January 15, and so those who are interested, are encouraged to apply by then.
