|Position:||Doctoral Fellow, Fellow, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Research Professional, Visiting Scholar|
ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore
The Nalanda-Sriwijaya Centre (NSC) at the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute (ISEAS) in Singapore pursues research on premodern interactions between Asian societies and civilisations. NSC is now accepting Visiting Fellowship applications from scholars of all ranks who wish to undertake research in two areas:
- Extra-regional linkages and networks: Focus on premodern maritime history, trade routes and economic links between Southeast Asia and China or India.
- Intra-regional linkages and networks: Focus on premodern flows of economic activity, power, language, culture and religion within the Southeast Asian region.
The Visiting Fellowship will be for one year, with a possibility for extension.
Successful applicants are expected to complete a paper based on their research for the peer-reviewed NSC Working Paper series or Archaeology Report Series; contribute short articles to NSC Highlights; give a public seminar in ISEAS; and contribute administratively to NSC and assist in developing NSC’s publications series where possible.
Successful applicants will receive a monthly (all-inclusive) stipend that is commensurate with his/her rank and experience. A round-trip economy airfare between the home country of the researcher and Singapore will also be provided (applicable to non-Singaporeans only).
Applications should include a cover letter, a full CV, two reference letters, and a research proposal of not more than five pages (double spaced). The proposal should discuss the topic to be examined, plans for any fieldwork and duration, projected timeline of research, and output. The preferred period for the fellowship should also be indicated.
Review of applications will begin on 1 March 2018. The search will continue until appointments are made. Applications should be sent to the following address:
