Full Text of JOE Listing:
The University Center for Human Values and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs invite applications for postdoctoral positions in Values and Public Policy. We aim to support highly promising scholars trained in moral and political philosophy, political theory, normative economics and related areas to develop a research agenda in the ethical dimensions of public policy.

Candidates selected will undertake a research project exploring a normative problem arising in an area of public policy in which the Woodrow Wilson School sponsors research. Candidates will be expected to contribute one course each year to the School's undergraduate program on a topic related to ethical issues in public policy.

Applicants must have completed the requirements for the Ph.D. by September 1, 2013 and must not have held the degree for more than three years by that date. They may not be employed by another institution during the term of their Princeton appointment.

Applicants' dissertation research need not be specifically in values and public policy, but they will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to developing a research project in this area during their time at Princeton. Projects related to environmental policy, population and health, democratic institutions and processes, information technology policy and global governance may have an advantage, although we will consider proposals related to any area in which the School sponsors research. For more information about these areas, please consult

The term of appointment is one year, normally beginning September 1, 2013, with the expectation of renewal for one further year assuming good performance. Applicants are expected to be in residence for the duration of the appointment.
Application Instructions:

Candidates should submit an online application at Search for requisition number #1200508. The online system includes instructions on how to apply. Materials should be submitted online by Monday, December 3, 2012. We cannot accept application materials by any other method. Decisions will be announced by Thursday, March 28, 2013. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.
