Postdoctoral Fellows


Each year the Center for Chinese Studies at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for the Postdoctoral Fellowship. The deadline to apply is late January.

The Center expects to make one postdoctoral award with a stipend of approximately $40,000. Holders of this fellowship are expected to (1) be in residence from August 1 through July 31; (2) complete a research project or revise a doctoral dissertation in the field of Chinese Studies, which will result in a publishable manuscript; and (3) participate in regular colloquia and seminar programs at the Center. Recipients of the award must have completed their degree by the commencement date of the fellowship. Applicants must be within five years of completing the Ph.D. and may not have been employed as an assistant professor, associate professor, or professor.

Application Procedures

Doctoral students and scholars holding the Ph.D. — or who will have received the degree by the time the appointment starts — are eligible to apply. Applications must be done online. The link to the online application will be live by mid-November. The Center expects to announce its awards in late March.
