for the academic year 2003-2004

THE INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY was founded in 1930 as a community of
scholars in which intellectual inquiry can be carried out in the most
favorable circumstances. It provides Members with libraries, offices,
seminar and lecture rooms, subsidized restaurant and housing facilities and
some secretarial and word-processing services.

THE SCHOOL OF HISTORICAL STUDIES supports scholarship in all fields of
historical research, but is concerned principally with the history of
western and near eastern civilization, with particular emphasis upon Greek
and Roman civilization, the history of Europe (medieval, early modern, and
modern), the Islamic world, East Asian studies, the history of art, and
modern international relations. The School also offers the Edward T. Cone
Membership in Music Studies. Qualified candidates of any nationality are
invited to apply for memberships. Apart from residence in Princeton during
term time, the only obligation of Members is to pursue their own research.
If they wish, however, Members may participate in seminars and meetings both
within the Institute and at nearby universities, and there are ample
opportunities for contacts with other scholars.

Approximately forty Members are appointed for either one or two terms each
year. The Ph.D. (or equivalent) and substantial publications are required
of all candidates at the time of application. Member awards are funded by
the Institute for Advanced Study or by other sources, including the National
Endowment for the Humanities and the Thyssen Foundation.

APPLICATION may be made for one or two terms (September to December, January
to April). Further information and application materials may be found on
the School's web site,, or they can be obtained from the
Administrative Officer, School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced
Study, Einstein Drive, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 (electronic mail address: Completed applications must be returned to the

in the United States and Canada to support promising young scholars who have
embarked on professional careers. Applicants must have served at least two,
and not more than four years as assistant professors in institutions of
higher learning in the United States or Canada and must have approval to
return to their institution following the period of membership. Stipends

In the academic year 2003-2004 the Institute for Advanced Study will again
take part in a program sponsored by the American Council of Learned
Societies, the Frederick Burkhardt Fellowships. These fellowships support
more adventurous, more wide-ranging, and longer term patterns of research
than are current in the humanities and related social sciences. Depending
on the availability of funds, ACLS will provide fellowships for up to eleven
recently tenured faculty, most of whom will spend a year at one of several
residential research centers, including the Institute for Advanced Study. A
scholar applying for the academic year 2003-2004 must normally have begun
her/his tenured contract at a U.S. or Canadian institution no earlier than
October 1, 1998. Applicants must submit a research plan, typically covering
a three to five year period; one of the first three years of research could
be spent as a Member at the Institute, either in the School of Historical
Studies or the School of Social Science.

Qualified candidates who would like to apply for affiliation with either
School of the Institute for Advanced Study under the auspices of this
program should visit the ACLS website,,
contact the ACLS by e-mail at, or by mail to ACLS
Fellowships Office, 228 East 45th Street, New York, NY 10017-3398 for
application materials and a more detailed description of the terms of the
fellowship. Applications for this program should be submitted directly to
the ACLS no later than October 1, 2002.
