CfA: ANU Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) Visiting Fellowship Program
As the hub for Chinese studies at ANU, the Australian Centre on China in the World (CIW) facilitates cross-campus, national, and international research and teaching collaborations to promote greater understanding of the Chinese world — the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, and the Chinese diaspora. CIW is the place to come to understand China and the Chinese world.
The CIW Visiting Fellowship Program brings early and mid-career researchers to the ANU campus to conduct and share research that promotes the study of the Chinese world.
This Fellowship opportunity is for scholars of all academic disciplines who are based in Australian and overseas academic institutions.
