With the support of the ASIANetwork-Luce Teaching Fellow Program, the Austin College Department of East Asian Studies invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in East Asian Studies. Candidates must have a PhD earned from a North American university within the past three years in hand before the position begins in August 2024, but ABD applicants may also be considered provided they can document a scheduled completion date prior to July 2024.

Field of study and methodological approach are open, but we are particularly interested in candidates capable of broadening Austin College’s extant strengths in Japanese history, politics, and culture with similar course offerings focused on China and/or the Koreas. Disciplinary training may be in anthropology, art history, literature and/or film, history, political science, or international relations. The successful candidate will combine a commitment to teaching excellence with a compelling research agenda. We welcome applicants interested in developing interdisciplinary pedagogies and are particularly seeking those who can teach comparatively across geographic regions of Asia.
