|Position:||Fellow, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Research Professional|
Applications are invited from suitably qualified scholars for a Postdoctoral Fellowship to work with Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki’s ARC Laureate Fellowship “Informal Life Politics in the Remaking of Northeast Asia: From Cold War to Post-Cold War”. This five year fixed-term position is in the School of Culture, History and Language, College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University.
The applicant should have a PhD in a relevant discipline. S/he will pursue both independent and team-based research consistent with the project, which focuses on “informal life politics”: local level grassroots movements in which individuals or groups act to protect their health or livelihood from threats seen as emanating from economic and environmental change, state action or the failures of state policy.
The appointee will identify and research relevant case studies from Taiwan, and collaborate with other project members in cross-border analysis of informal life politics in the Northeast Asian region as a whole. S/he will work under the supervision of the Laureate Fellow, and also assist in project management, in supporting the work of other members of the research team and in supervising and mentoring postgraduate students. With other project team members s/he will communicate ideas and findings generated by the project to a wider audience though high quality publications and through project conferences and workshops.
Applicants should submit a full CV, a statement addressing each of the selection criteria, a 3-page research proposal and three referees' reports due by the closing date.
This is an anticipated vacancy, subject to availability of funding.
