Postdoctoral Research Associate Position on Contemporary China


The Wythes Center on Contemporary China at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) seeks to hire a social science scholar working on China.  While the position is open to rank, preference will be given to early-career scholars from the social sciences whose scholarship and teaching combine disciplinary expertise, methodological rigor, and deep regional knowledge of China (including the ability to read, write, and speak Chinese). 

The successful candidate will be jointly appointed in a social science or related department at Princeton.  They will complement our existing strengths and areas of concentration and enjoy cross-disciplinary ties with other units on campus. Princeton is especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.

Interested applicants should apply online at listing link. Please include a curriculum vitae, including a publication list, a statement of research and teaching interests, and a separate statement outlining how the applicant sees themselves contributing to our mission of expanding our strengths in China-relevant social sciences. Please also include the names and contact information for three references. For junior candidates, referees will be contacted directly by email with instructions for submitting a confidential recommendation on your behalf. For senior candidates, referees will not be contacted until later in the process. Review of applications will begin immediately but accepted until the position is filled.  For fullest consideration, apply by October 31, 2023.
