Berggruen Fellowship at NYU Global Institute for Advanced Study
NYU’s Global Institute for Advanced Study plans to hire 3 post-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2018-2019, one each, in philosophy, sociology and economics. These fellows, funded by the Berggruen Institute in relation to its programs around the Great Transformations, will help in the first stages of a project on the ethical and policy issues raised by long-term changes in the labor market.
The central questions are whether we need to find new social and economic forms that meet the need to
- (1) produce goods and
- (2) provide incomes, while providing frameworks for
- (3) sociability and
- (4) significance;
and, if so, what the major normative issues are that we will face in doing that. Fellows will work under the guidance of Professor K. Anthony Appiah and a small group of senior scholars to produce literature reviews and a preliminary paper for their respective fields.
NYU will provide office space and assistance in housing and a stipend of $75,000.
Applicants should submit a CV and a one-page letter of interest as well as one piece of recent published work by March 16.
