The Heyman Center Post-Doctoral Fellowship in East Asian Civilizations is a teaching fellowship carrying a term of one year. Only recent PhD graduates or students who plan to defend their dissertations before the summer of this year, preferably in the fields of Chinese literature and history, are eligible to apply. A fellow is usually asked to teach independent sections of Colloquium on Major Texts: East Asia (Asian Humanities) or Introduction to Major Topics in East Asian Civilizations; in some cases other teaching assignments may be made, according to departmental need and the specialty of the fellow. Prior teaching experience in Major Texts or Major Topics is valuable and will be considered by the selection committee.
