Application for Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to teach at another college or university

Pursuant to the Rules and Procedures of the Professional Researchers and Professional Specialists, “Time devoted to outside professional activities may not exceed two days per month without prior approval of the dean of the faculty.” Teaching at another institution constitutes an outside activity for purposes of this rule.

Please submit this form to request permission to teach at another university while appointed as a PDRA at Princeton. You will receive a decision by email from the Office of the Dean of the Faculty within 5 business days of submitting this form. Please note the PDRA position is a 100% duty time position, so teaching at another university has the following limitations:

  • The official class meeting length must not exceed 3.5 hours per week.
  • The class must meet on a day/time that will not interfere with your responsibilities at Princeton.
  • Your Princeton faculty supervisor(s) must grant you permission.
  • If you are not a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident, please contact the Davis International Center before accepting a teaching role to ensure there are no visa and work authorization implications for this additional employment.
  • This teaching counts towards your time for outside professional activities.
  • You must include this outside activity on your annual Conflict of Interest (COI) disclosure form (irrespective of salary).
  • If you are paid more than $5,000 for teaching at another school, you need to fill out a COI Update form within 30 days of receiving payment. This form can be accessed at https://ria.princeton.edu/conflict-of-interest/forms
