Full Text of JOE Listing:

Within the framework of their Memorandum of Understanding, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Princeton University have established a Postdoctoral Fellowship Program: CUHK Shenzhen-Princeton Postdoctoral Program (CPPP), aiming at training highly-qualified, early-career postdoctoral researchers in studies of contemporary China so that they are positioned to become leaders in their respective academic fields. Princeton University and CUHK Shenzhen invite applications for a postdoctoral research associate in studies of contemporary China.

Important: If you have questions, also refer to the FAQs:

The fellowship is expected to be awarded for up to two years: the first 12 consecutive months at CUHK Shenzhen, and the next 12 consecutive months at Princeton University with a visiting appointment at CUHK Shenzhen, with renewal after the first year contingent on satisfactory performance. Preferred start date is September 1, 2019. The position is open to early-career scholars who would be in residence and participate in the host organization’s activities, including student-faculty seminars, workshops, and public lectures. The position is primarily open to data science-relevant disciplines, but it can be open to any discipline, as long as the fellow conducts research on contemporary China under the guidance of faculty at both Universities. The candidate’s research must be supervised by a faculty member at each University and, as such, must receive the endorsement of a faculty member at each institution in order to apply.

Requirements and Opportunities:

Successful applicants must provide a 10-page report on their research and experience in the Postdoctoral Fellowship after completion of the two-year program.
Fellows are encouraged to publish together with their hosts at CUHK Shenzhen and Princeton.
The fellowship is open to highly qualified researchers of all nationalities who received their PhD no more than two years prior to the start of the appointment.
