These fellowships are for a period of up to one year, commencing on or after September 1, 2017. The selection process will be based on academic merit and necessary budgetary approvals.

Candidates working on any aspect of pre-twentieth century intra-Asian interactions are welcome to apply, but topics related to Indian Ocean ports and port-cities are of particular interest to the Center.

Candidates are expected to hold a PhD, preferably completed within the past five years (2012 and after)

Round trip airfare to Shanghai, and monthly compensation combining housing support and 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.
