Princeton International Economics Section Fellowships


Princeton IES Postdoctoral Fellowships are available to those who have recently completed their Ph.D. degree or will do so before arriving in Princeton. Most fellows begin their fellowship having already secured a permanent position for the following year.

Postdoctoral 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.
