The Australian Centre on China in the World (Centre) is a major initiative at ANU that has been funded by the Australian government. It enhances the University’s existing capabilities to create an integrated, world-leading institution for Chinese Studies and the understanding of China on a global scale.
The Centre wishes to appoint a number of post-doctoral fellows to do research in one of the six research themes – “China Time”, “China Urban”, “China Justice”, “China Texts”, “China Everyday” and “China Numbers”. Outlines of these themes are available at http://ciw.anu.edu.au. The appointees will have submitted a PhD in a humanities or social sciences discipline with a focus on China in the world, know Chinese, English and, preferably, at least one other language (not just another dialect of Chinese), and have cogent and achievable research and publication plans for the period of the fellowship.
The fellowships may be offered for one or two years (research); three years (research) commencing with a two year appointment with the opportunity for a one year extension based on performance; or four years (half-time research/half-time project administration for the first two years, research intensive for the second two years). Candidates should indicate in their application which type of appointments they would be interested in.
