Proposals for New Programs
Each year, the Princeton Center for Theoretical Sciences sponsors thematic programs focused on forefront issues in theoretical science selected from proposals submitted by Princeton faculty and Center Postdoctoral Fellows having different central research interests but sharing a desire to explore a new area requiring their joint expertise. A core group of interested faculty will be in residence in the Center for the duration of each program and will, with the participation of interested Center Postdoctoral Fellows, organize pedagogical seminars, research seminars and discussion groups on the chosen topic. The audience for the program activities will include the broader Princeton theory community, including graduate students and suitably prepared undergraduates.
Proposals can be made by any faculty or group of faculty at Princeton University and may include organizers from outside Princeton. A call for proposals is made each Spring; but, in the case of especially urgent or timely topics, the Center is always prepared to respond to proposals outside the yearly cycle. Proposals are typically short (a page or two) and should include a short description, list of organizers and potential participants, and an approximate budget.
Proposals may range anywhere from a full year to a term to a few weeks to a few days. Proposal review and selections is made by the Board of Center Faculty Fellows.
