Postdoctoral Fellowship

UC Berkeley Shinjo Ito Postdoctoral Fellowship in Japanese Buddhism, 2014‑2015


With the generous support of the Shinnyo-en Foundation, Center for Japanese Studies at UC Berkeley is pleased to invite applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship. The term of the appointment is August 1, 2014, to May 31, 2015.

The Fellowship is intended to foster the academic careers of recent Ph.D.'s, providing time to pursue their research along with the opportunity to take part in regular events and workshops offered by the Centers for Japanese and Buddhist Studies. Fellows will deliver a public lecture on their research as part of the Center for Japanese Studies Colloquium Series. Fellows will be provided with shared office space, library privileges, and a stipend of $40,000 plus benefits, as well as a $2000 conference travel and research fund.

Applicants must have their doctoral degrees in hand by June 30, 2014, and must be no more than six years out of their doctorate. Candidates who do not yet hold a Ph.D. but expect to by June 30, 2014, should supply a letter from their home institution confirming their schedule to completion.
