Taiwan Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship at Oregon State University

The Chiu program for Taiwan studies at Oregon State University  invites  applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. Based on the support from the Chun and Jane Chiu Foundation, the fellowship program, which is for the academic year 2017-8, is set up to support the following categories of research:

  • History of Taiwan; and
  • Projects on Taiwan in anthropology, political science, and sociology with a strong historical dimension.

We especially welcome proposals on Taiwan which are developed in transnational or comparative perspective.  

The Chiu fellow will be required to be in residence, teaching  two sections of one online course (on modern China and Japan) during his/her stay at OSU (which operates on  a quarter system). The fellow is also required to  dedicate his/her time to research and writing.  The fellowship is a nine-month appointment with  a stipend of 45000 US dollars (OSU will also provide a healthcare option that will be covered by the university).

The goal of the postdoctoral fellowship is to assist young scholars who intend to find tenure-track positions and establish themselves in the American academia. Therefore, applicants must be recent PhDs (they must have completed all PhD degree requirements no more than three years before June 15, 2017).
