NOTES:

  • Why would an MFA program require its faculty members to have a PhD? Are they essentially declaring their degree worthless on the academic market? The non-fiction job at Michigan that is listed below states that a terminal degree (i.e. MFA) is acceptable. Why does this have different requirements? Is it an error? 
  • I looked at the ad on UM's website, and it says an MFA or MA is required--no mention there of a PhD being required (indeed, no mention of a PhD at all). Not sure where the above copy was lifted from. Perhaps there had been an initial mistake in the ad? Should the above be edited to reflect that?

Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. An $82,000 stipend is provided for this 10-month appointment as a Visiting Fellow. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.

Princeton University (NJ) - Princeton Arts Fellows (incl. Creative Writing)Edit

Princeton University invites applications for Princeton Arts Fellows.

Princeton Arts Fellows, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

We will be accepting applications in Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts.

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, film makers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists -- this list is not meant to be exhaustive -- who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Fellowships are for two 10-month academic years. An $82,000 salary for each year is included. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 at Princeton, interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but Fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship.

Interviews of finalists will take place on campus during January 7-8, 2019. All finalists are expected to attend the on-campus interview.

While Fellows need not reside in Princeton, they will be required to spend a significant part of the week on campus.

This Fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

Please apply at: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/7041 by September 18, 2018, 11:59 p.m. EST. Please note: The application will be available starting July 1, 2018. All applicants must submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references. In addition, work samples should be submitted online (i.e., a writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.)

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a life time.

We cannot confirm receipt of applications nor can we accept applications submitted after the deadline. Statements are limited to 500 words and writing samples to 3,000 words.

Selection will be based on artistic achievement; the potential for excellent teaching; and the likelihood of significant contributions to the artistic life of the Princeton community. Appointments will be made at the rank of lecturer.

Advanced degree preferred.
