The New School, India China Institute
Postdoctoral Fellowship – The Post-liberal World: Perils and Prospects
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
The India China Institute (ICI) of The New School seeks applications for a one-year position in 2023-24 as Postdoctoral Fellow in our “Global China and India in a Post-Liberal World” research cluster. The fellow will be in residence at ICI for the 2023-24 academic year.
This theme of the 2023-24 postdoctoral fellowship is motivated by global challenges to the Western-led liberal order and the influence that India and China have in bringing changes to existing regimes or in creating alternatives to the liberal world order. ICI welcomes applications from those whose research focuses on emerging alternative orders in geopolitics; authoritarian governance domestically and regionally; climate change and energy security; digital governance; science, technology, and infrastructure; populism and ethno-nationalism; migration and citizenship; public health and social policy; higher education and knowledge production; and South-South cooperation. The empirical scope of the research should focus on China or India, or engage with China-India comparisons and connections, or global flows that India or China are prominently part of. Applications are welcome from all social science and humanities disciplines, including interdisciplinary PhD programs.
ICI serves as a hub for research and public engagement on India, China, and beyond. Its mission is to address issues of global concern through collaborative research and the formation of transnational networks of scholars and practitioners based in India, China, and elsewhere around the world. We believe that studying and thinking about the pasts and presents of India, China, and other countries in the global South can provide new frameworks that provide alternative perspectives to dominant understandings of global politics, culture, and design.
The New School is committed to actively recruiting from a diverse pool of applicants. We encourage international candidates and candidates from groups underrepresented in US higher education to apply. The New School does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, creed, sex or gender (including gender identity and expression), pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, religious practices, mental or physical disability, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, veteran status, marital or partnership status, or any other legally protected status.
