Postdoctoral Fellows

The Center for East Asian Studies offers competitive year-long postdoctoral fellowships in Chinese and Japanese studies without restriction on discipline or time period. In addition to teaching one course during their tenure at Stanford, fellows also organize lectures and workshops, and participate in the daily intellectual life of the Center. Former CEAS postdoctoral fellows have gone on to teach at some of the leading institutions of higher education in the country. Applications are due each January for the following academic year. Visit the Chinese Studies and Japanese Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship pages for more information.
