The Center for East Asian Studies at Stanford University is pleased to offer a postdoctoral fellowship in Japanese Studies for 2013-14. This award is open to scholars in any field of Japanese studies; however, preference will be given to highly qualified scholars working in the pre-modern 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. The center expects to make one award carrying 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. They may also have the option to organize a lecture series. Stanford University Press will have first right of refusal for manuscripts produced during the postdoctoral appointment.
