As part of a broader Luce Foundation funded initiative on China's domestic & export infrastructure development, The Center for Asian Studies (CAS) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for the Luce Postdoctoral Fellowship in Chinese infrastructures, beginning August 2018. The Luce initiative seeks to bring together the field of China studies and the broader ‘infrastructure turn' in the humanities and social sciences. The fellowship provides a two-year 9-month salary of $50,000 + benefits, and two summer research/travel grants of $5,000. The Fellow is expected to be actively engaged in research on Chinese infrastructures, and will work with CAS in organizing an international workshop in 2019, as well as take the academic lead in editing the workshop's subsequent published collection. All requirements for the PhD must be completed by August 15, 2018. Applicants should have received their PhD no earlier than August, 2013. A PhD from any discipline will be considered, but research experience and interest in Chinese infrastructure development is required. Infrastructure here is defined in a broad sense as comprising physical/material as well as social/institutional or digital/electronic phenomena.
