The Louis Frieberg Center for East Asian Studies offers post-doctoral fellowships for the 2020-2021 academic year. The post-docs are open to scholars in the humanities and social sciences specializing in East Asia, especially China, Japan, Korea and Mongolia. Fellowships are granted for one academic year or one semester. The starting date of the visit should not be later than four years after receipt of the doctoral degree; the fellow must hold a valid doctoral degree no later than October 2020. The fellowship consists of a monthly stipend (tax free) of $1,800, paid in Israeli currency and linked to the representative rate of exchange. Fellows are entitled to one airline ticket (economy class, up to $1,500) for a direct flight from their hometown to Israel and back. The fellows are expected to teach one semester-long course at the Hebrew University (for additional payment, according to the Hebrew University regulations). The ability to teach a course in Hebrew is welcome, but is not a prerequisite for attaining the fellowship. The fellows will also actively participate in the life and activities of the Louis Frieberg Center for East Asian Studies and will present their research at the seminar of the Department of Asian Studies, and possibly at other relevant forums. Any work outside the Hebrew University would be allowed only after specific approval by the Frieberg Center. Applicants should submit one hard copy and an electronic copy—in one file—of their application to the address below, no later than March 8, 2020.
The application must include:
2. Research plan (up to 5 pages)
3. A sample of applicant’s publications (if relevant)
4. Two letters of recommendation
The applicant should indicate the names and positions of the recommenders, but the letters of recommendation should be sent by the recommenders directly to the email address below.
