Louis Frieberg Post-doctoral Fellowships for East Asia Specialists

Hebrew University logoThe Louis Frieberg Cen­ter for East Asian Stud­ies at The Hebrew Uni­ver­si­ty of Jerusalem offers post-doc­tor­al fel­low­ships for the year 2015–2016. The fel­low­ships are open to schol­ars in the human­i­ties and social sci­ences spe­cial­iz­ing in East Asia, espe­cial­ly Korea, Chi­na, Japan, and Mon­go­lia. Fel­low­ships are grant­ed for one aca­d­e­m­ic year or one term with the pos­si­bil­i­ty of exten­sion for an addi­tion­al year. The start­ing date of the vis­it should not be lat­er than four years after receipt of the doc­tor­al degree; the fel­low must hold a valid doc­tor­al degree no lat­er than Sep­tem­ber 2015.

The fel­low­ship con­sists of a month­ly stipend (tax free) of $1,500, paid in Israeli NIS and linked to the “rep­re­sen­ta­tive rate of exchange.” Fel­lows are enti­tled to one air­line tick­et (econ­o­my class, up to $1,500) for a direct flight from their home town to Israel and back.

fel­lows are expect­ed to teach one semes­te­r­i­al course at the Hebrew Uni­ver­si­ty (for addi­tion­al pay­ment, accord­ing to the Hebrew Uni­ver­si­ty reg­u­la­tions). The abil­i­ty to teach a course in Hebrew is wel­come, but is not a pre­req­ui­site for attain­ing the fel­low­ship. The fel­lows are also expect­ed to active­ly par­tic­i­pate in the life and activ­i­ties of the Louis Frieberg Cen­ter for East Asian Stud­ies. The fel­lows will present their research at the depart­ment sem­i­nar of the Asian Stud­ies Depart­ment and pos­si­bly at oth­er rel­e­vant forums. Any work out­side the Hebrew Uni­ver­si­ty would be allowed only after spe­cif­ic approval by the Frieberg Cen­ter.

Appli­cants should sub­mit one hard copy and an elec­tron­ic copy–in one file–of their appli­ca­tion to the address below, no lat­er than March 31, 2015. The appli­ca­tion must include: a cur­ricu­lum vitae; research plan; sam­ple of applicant’s pub­li­ca­tions (if rel­e­vant); and two let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion. The appli­cant should indi­cate the names and posi­tions of the rec­om­menders, but the let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion should be sent by the rec­om­menders direct­ly to the e-mail address below.
