CfA: 2024-25 An Wang Postdoctoral Fellowships in Chinese Studies
The Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies is offering two post-doctoral fellowships to support participants in an interdisciplinary research group that will focus on China’s global engagements and its effect on the global political economy. The theme of the research will be “Global Firms and Rival States: Business, Transnational Commerce, and China’s Rise.” The research group will be led by Meg Rithmire, F. Warren McFarlan Associate Professor of Business Administration, and David Yang, Professor of Economics.
As part of the interdisciplinary research group, the primary responsibility of the An Wang postdoctoral fellows will be to conduct their proposed research project under the mentorship of Professors Rithmire and Yang. Using the balance of their available time, they will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities to be decided upon by the group. Over the course of the 2024-2025 academic year, the An Wang Postdoctoral Fellows will be invited to share their research with a growing community of Harvard researchers working on China and the global political economy.
We welcome applications from junior scholars in multiple disciplines including political science, history, sociology, and economics with research projects and interests relevant to this theme.
Applications are due by January 16, 2024.
The one-year fellowship period is from August 1, 2024, to July 31, 2025. An Wang postdoctoral fellows are expected to reside in the Greater Boston area for the duration of the fellowship.
Total annual stipend for An Wang Postdoctoral Fellows: $65,000. Postdoctoral Fellows will be eligible for Harvard University’s subsidized comprehensive medical, dental, vision, and other benefits. In addition, $3,000 in research funding for scholarly activities will be available to each fellow.
The fellowships will be subject to all rules and regulations of Harvard University.
