New York, NY, US

The Weatherhead East Asian Institute invites applications for its 2017-2018 Postdoctoral Fellowship on “Global Circuits” through the Dorothy Borg Research Program. The Institute is searching for a postdoctoral scholar who studies a region in East Asia or the Americas from the disciplines of literature, history, religion, or art history/material culture studies, and whose research involves primary sources (archival, material and/or digital) from both East Asian and American archives. We seek candidates who are able to teach transnational and/or global issues relating to the Americas and East Asia, involving both East Asian and American materials in the classroom. The ability to engage with digital humanities in teaching and research is preferable, though not required. The Fellow will teach one course each semester, as well as pursue his or her own research. The Fellow will also participate in collaborative projects with other Fellows, and s/he will be an active participant in day-to-day WEAI programs and events.
