Location: Shanghai, China
Position: one-year postdoctoral fellowship
Two postdoctoral positions for the study of intra-Asian interactions are available at the Center for Global Asia at NYU Shanghai. These fellowships are for a period of up to one year, commencing on or after September 1, 2016.
Candidates working on any aspect of pre-twentieth century intra-Asian interactions are welcome to apply, but topics related to Indian Ocean and overland Eurasian connections are of particular interest to the Center.
Candidates are expected to hold a PhD, preferably completed within the past five years (2011 and after).
Round trip airfare to Shanghai, a housing subsidy, and a monthly stipend will be provided by the Center for Global Asia. In addition to working on individual research and publication, the postdoctoral fellows are expected to assist in the activities of the Center. There is no teaching requirement.
The Center for Global Asia at NYU Shanghai serves as the hub within the NYU Global Network University system to promote the study of Asian interactions, both historical and contemporary. The overall objective of the Center is to provide global societies with information on the contexts for the reemerging connections between the various parts of Asia through research and teaching. This includes exploring how the polities and societies of Asia have interacted over time and are now beginning to interact again on broad fronts.
The deadline for applications is July 1, 2016 and the position will be open until filled. To be considered, applicants should submit curriculum vitae, a 3-5- page research proposal, a writing sample, and two letters of reference, all in PDF format.
