The Center for East Asian Studies at Stanford University offers up to two postdoctoral fellowships in Chinese Studies each year. These awards are open to scholars in the humanities and social sciences studying any historical period. Applicants must have been awarded their Ph.D. no later than August 31 the year in which the fellowship begins, and may not be more than five years beyond receipt of the doctoral degree. Fellowships may be awarded to those who hold continuing, assistant professor-level teaching positions. U.S. citizenship is not required. Those who have received their Ph.D. from Stanford University will not normally be considered. Each award carries a 12-month stipend of approximately $50,000. Fellows are required to be in residence in the Stanford area during the appointment period; to teach one course during the academic year; and to participate in all regular Center activities. Stanford University Press will have first right of refusal for manuscripts produced during the postdoctoral appointment.
