Princeton University (NJ) - Non-Fiction LectureshipEdit

Council of the Humanities - 21000

Some writers relocate to Princeton for a semester, taking a leave from daily journalism and using this appointment to teach and also to conduct research, attend lectures, and participate in the University community. These writers in residence are required to spend a significant part of the week on campus. Others commute to campus once a week for the 12 weeks of the term, as well as the week of Reading Period. Applicants residing within a 60-mile radius of Princeton (including New York and Philadelphia) typically are eligible only for a commuting appointment. In 2017-2018 the stipend for commuting appointments will be $36,000, and the stipend for writers in residence will be $90,000 for one semester.

Seminars typically meet once a week for three hours, with enrollment limited to 16 students, chosen by the professor. Students are expected to devote four to six hours a week to class preparation (including reading and writing). They submit assignments every week or two, which are critiqued during individual conferences. Professors often invite guest speakers and arrange a class visit to their newspaper or magazine. In these seminars, we do not seek to duplicate courses in academic departments, but rather to offer the insights and experience that only practicing journalists can provide. The most successful seminars offer frequent, short, hands-on writing and reporting assignments and more writing than reading.

Applicants should submit the following: a résumé showing employment history, recent publications, and the name of a reference we may contact; a proposal for a seminar related to journalism or non-fiction writing; and a cover letter describing your interest in teaching and stating your preference for a residential or commuting appointment. Please also include in your cover letter the URL to a favorite published article you have written. You may also include one URL for an audio or video file. Please send your writing sample as a URL web address whenever possible, although you may upload a document if necessary.

Many courses fit under one of these broad rubrics:

  • Politics and the Media
  • The Literature of Fact
  • Investigative Journalism
  • International News
  • Digital Journalism
  • Documentary Journalism (photo/video)
  • Audio Journalism
  • The Media and Social Issues
  • Writing about (Culture, Film, Science, Law, Medicine, etc.)

Seminar proposals should include:

  • a course description for the catalogue (restricted to 75 words)
  • a paragraph or two about the focus of the course
  • specific topics for each of the twelve weeks
  • a sample reading list of 6-8 titles (articles, websites, chapters, books)
  • possible writing assignments (typically 5-8 short pieces, one of which might be developed into a longer project, submitted during reading period)

This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

Essential Qualifications

  • Candidates should have achieved distinction in journalism and other kinds of writing and be skilled at communicating their experience to students, peers, and members of the community.
  • Must be a practicing journalist-a reporter, editor, producer, journalistic historian, cultural critic, or documentarian.
