Fellowship for In-Residence Research at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center in Nanjing, China

Institute for International Research, Johns Hopkins University & Nanjing University



Objectives

Taking advantage of Nanjing's world-class historical archives, the fifteen-year-old Hopkins-Nanjing Center's goal is to further collaborative research between international and Chinese scholars that promotes a broad research agenda. The institute encourages projects that employ diverse methodologies, including ethno-methodologies, archival research, survey research, and encourages (but does not require) collaborative research among scholars from the United States and China.

Examples of the kinds of research projects that may be undertaken in the academic year 2001-2002 include but are not limited to: international relations and U. S.-China relations, modern Chinese history, judicial reform and the rule of law, the evolution of governing and administrative institutions, the impact of economic reforms, public health and the environment, the development of non-governmental organizations, and multicultural studies in the U.S. and China.

Description of Award
Up to three fellowships are awarded to western scholars and three fellowships to Chinese scholars each academic year. The fellowship will include a financial award that covers some combination of salary support, living expenses, travel, and general research support. The amount of funding will depend on the level of other external support that the successful applicant enjoys, such as grants funds or sabbatical salary support. Those candidates who have secured funding for their projects or who can demonstrate some salary support will be especially attractive to the institute as this will allow the appointment of additional fellows.

Eligibility
The competition is open to professors, associate professors, and assistant professors, as well as established scholars holding non-faculty appointments. Individuals completing their post-doctoral training are also eligible for appointment as junior fellows. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or the terminal degree in their field. Applicants are welcome to consider a flexible (but significant) period of residence at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center.
