The Chiu program for Taiwan studies at Oregon State University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship for the academic year 2020-21. Based on the support from the Chun and Jane Chiu Foundation, the fellowship program is set up to support the following categories of research: 1. History of Taiwan; and 2. Projects on Taiwan in anthropology, political science, sociology, or literature 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. The fellow is also required to dedicate his/her time to research, writing, and training in teaching. The fellowship is a nine-month appointment with a stipend of $50,000 US dollars. OSU will also provide a healthcare option and support for professional development.
The goal of the postdoctoral fellowship is to assist young scholars who intend to find tenure-track positions 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, 2020).
To apply, please submit the following documents to Taiwan.Studies@oregonstate.edu by January 31, 2020.
1. A cover letter
2. Curriculum vitae, including list of publications
3. A research proposal in which applicants explain their project. The proposal should not exceed three pages (double-spaced, Times New Roman, font size 12).
4. Two letters of reference. One must be from the applicant’s major professor (dissertation advisor).
Applicants could ask their referees to email their letters as attached PDFs to Taiwan.Studies@oregonstate.edu.
The committee will make its decision in March. Please don't hesitate to send a message to Taiwan.Studies@oregonstate.edu, if you have any questions.
