Stanford University: 2021–2022 Postdoctoral Fellowships in Contemporary Asia

The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University is pleased to announce its search for two 2021-2022 Shorenstein Postdoctoral Fellows in Contemporary Asia-Pacific Studies. Made possible through the generosity of Walter H. Shorenstein, awards will be made to two junior scholars (recent PhDs must have degree conferral and approval by June 30, 2021) for research and writing on Asia.

The primary focus of the fellowship is on contemporary political, economic, or social change in the Asia-Pacific region (including Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia), or topics in international relations and international political economy. The postdoctoral fellowship is a 10-month appointment with a salary rate commensurate with Stanford policy (based on an annual 12-month rate of $66,000), plus $2,000 for research expenses. Appointments will begin in the fall quarter of the 2021-2022 academic year.


Applications will be accepted starting September 21, 2020, until January 4, 2021.
