Louis Frieberg Post-doctoral Fellowships in East Asian Studies

The Louis Frieberg Center for East Asian Studies offers post-doctoral fellowships for the year 2018-2019. The post-docs are open to scholars in the humanities and social sciences specializing in East Asia, especially China, Japan, Korea and Mongolia.

Fellowships are granted for one academic year or one term. The starting date of the visit should not be later than four years after receipt of the Doctoral Degree; the fellow must hold a valid Doctoral Degree no later than October 2018.

The fellowship consists of a monthly stipend (tax free) of $1,800, paid in Israeli NIS and linked to the representative rate of exchange. Fellows are entitled to one airline ticket (economy class, up to 1500$) for a direct flight from their home town to Israel and back.

The fellows are expected to teach one semesterial course at the Hebrew University (for additional payment, according to the Hebrew University regulations). The ability to teach a course in Hebrew is welcome, but is not a prerequisite for attaining the fellowship. The fellows are also expected to actively participate in the life and activities of the Louis Frieberg Center for East Asian Studies. The fellows will present their research at the department seminar of the Asian Studies Department, and possibly at other relevant forums. Any work outside the Hebrew University would be allowed only after specific approval by the Frieberg Center.

Applicants should submit one hard copy and one electronic copy - in one file - of their application to the address below, no later than March 22, 2018. The application must include:

  • CV
  • research plan (up to 5 pages)
  • A sample of applicant's publications (if relevant)

Two letters of recommendation. The applicant should indicate the names and positions of the recommenders, but the letters of recommendation should be sent by the recommenders directly to the email address indicated in the call.
