Nomination process

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the nomination process for PCTS Post-doctoral Fellowship applications.  Note that self-nominations are not accepted.

The nomination process normally begins with a candidate receiving a nomination from a faculty member or senior researcher from a research institution.  The nominator can be your advisor, faculty collaborator, or a senior researcher, but it should be someone who knows you and your work very well.   If the person whom you would like to nominate you is unaware of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, you can point them to our homepage and, if they need more information, they can write to us. 

Once they nominate you on our website, you will receive an email with instructions.  The instructions will ask you to complete some personal contact information, for your cv, a statement of research, and to identify other references.  The entire system is automated and begins with the simple step of a nomination by a Faculty member.

Please direct the person who will nominate you to our main webpage or directly to:

Another way of being nominated is by submitting an application to a regular postdoctoral position in the natural sciences and engineering at Princeton University.  Faculty reviewing applications can forward the names of outstanding applicants for nomination even if they do not already know them.

For those with concerns or questions about being nominated, please address them by email (click here) and we will get back to you shortly.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, nation origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. These positions are subject to the University's background check policy.

*Nominated candidates will have the option of self-identifying themselves.
