I have received the following announcement. Note that one of the postdocs is on the theme of "China Justice". (Whatever happened to "Chinese" as an adjective?) A summary is below; full text here.
The Australian Centre on China in the World (Centre) is a major new initiative at the ANU that has been funded by the Australian government.
It enhances the ANU's existing capabilities to create an integrated, world-leading institution for Chinese Studies and the understanding of China on a global scale.
The Centre wishes to appoint a number of post-doctoral fellows to do research in one of the five research themes - "China Time", "China Urban", "China Justice", "China Texts" and "China Everyday". Outlines of these themes are available on our website, http://ciw.anu.edu.au or by request.
The appointees will have submitted a PhD in some area of Chinese Studies, know Chinese, English and, preferably, at least one other language (not just another dialect of Chinese), and have cogent and achievable research and publication plans for the period of the fellowship.
The fellowships may be offered for one or two years (research intensive), three years (research intensive), or four years (half-time research/half-time project administration for the first two years, research intensive for the second two years). Candidates should indicate in their application which type of appointments they would be interested in.
