Program Overview

Recent recipients of the Ph.D. in any discipline whose research focuses on China compete annually for two fellowships. The Center generally receives between sixty and seventy applications. The scholars chosen are expected to spend the academic year in residence at the Center and to revise a dissertation or other manuscript for publication in the Center's China Research Monograph Series or by the University of California Press.


The Center for Chinese Studies at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for its 2006-2007 Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Center expects to make one postdoctoral award with a stipend of approximately $38,000. Holders of this fellowship are expected to (1) be in residence from August 1, 2006 through July 31, 2007; (2) complete a research project or revise a doctoral dissertation in the field of Chinese Studies, which will result in a publishable manuscript; and (3) participate in all regular colloquia and seminar programs at the Center. By accepting the award, the postdoctoral fellow agrees to grant the Center for Chinese Studies the first option for publication of the manuscript.

Recipients of the award must have completed their degree by the commencement date of the fellowship. Normally, all applicants must be within five years of completing the Ph.D. The Center for Chinese Studies Postdoctoral Fellowship may be combined with other sources of funding.


The deadline for receipt of completed applications is Tuesday, January 31, 2006. The Center expects to announce its awards in late March. All applicants are responsible for ensuring that their applications are completed and received by the closing date.
