Rosenberg Institute Scholar - College of Arts and Sciences

Faculty Boston, Massachusetts


Description

The Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies at Suffolk University Boston welcomes applications from scholars who wish to be considered for a short term appointment as a Rosenberg Institute Scholar.

This nonresidential appointment is for scholars who wish to complete a research and writing topic of contemporary or current policy relevance that focuses on Greater China, Southeast Asia or South Asia. We especially encourage applicants who are willing to disseminate their scholarship to a broad audience, or engage in public scholarship across various platforms.

The program supports a six month appointment on a nonresidential basis, as well as a brief residential component of a few days at Suffolk University’s campus in downtown Boston, during which time the Scholar will be asked to present a public seminar and interact with Suffolk University faculty and students. The Rosenberg Institute Scholar will be expected to complete an English language article or white paper that will be published on the Rosenberg Institute website, and become part of the institute’s continuing series of white papers. We expect that a first draft of the paper will be submitted before the end of the appointment; and that the Scholar maintain active communication with the Institute Director during the entirety of the appointment.  The honorarium for this work, paid at the completion of the appointment is $7,500.  

Applications are due no later than December 15, 2019.
