Full-time Postdoctoral Position
The DFG Research Training Group 1613 at the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of Duisburg-Essen (IN-EAST) invites applications for one full-time post-doctoral position, available from April 1, 2013, in its English language doctoral and post-doctoral program. IN-EAST is the largest institute of social scientific research on contemporary East Asia in continental Europe, offering international degree programs at the MA and doctoral levels in Chinese and Japanese Studies. IN-EAST is a member of EastAsiaNet, the European Research School Network of Contemporary East Asian Studies (www.eastasianet.eu).
We seek applicants with expertise in language-based social scientific Chinese or Japanese Studies, with an excellent doctorate and a strong publication record in area studies, economics or social sciences.
Successful applicants are expected to develop a research project with a focus on one of the sub-themes of the research training group. Post-docs are expected to contribute to the doctoral training activities, including the mentoring of doctoral projects in the group, and to support the organization of the joint training measures with the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield (White Rose East Asia Centre) and East Asian partners.
This post-doc appointment is for an initial one year period with the opportunity to extend for another year pending the extension of funding by the German Research Foundation. To enable a focus on research, the position has a reduced teaching load of one seminar per semester. Post-docs will receive support from the participating scientists in developing proposals for third-party research funding. For this purpose, post-docs are eligible for preliminary research funding, including travel and short research residencies in East Asia.
