I've received the following announcement:
The 2014-2015 Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program core competition is now open.
The Fulbright Scholar Program offers teaching, research or combination teaching/research awards in over 125 countries for the 2014-2015 academic year. Opportunities are available for college and university faculty and administrators as well as for professionals, artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, independent scholars and many others.
This year, there are over 60 awards available in the field of law. Moreover, All Discipline awards offered in all regions of the world welcome teaching and/or research proposals in any area of study, including interdisciplinary projects. Practicing lawyers and law school faculty are encourage to visit the 2014-15 Catalog of Awards for more information about these opportunities. Among them are Distinguished Chair awards in Italy and Sweden; a chance to explore China or Nepal; a Rule of Law, Civil Society Development and Judicial reform award in Macedonia; and an International Human Rights Law award in the West Bank.
In order to meet the changing needs of academia and develop new options to better accommodate the interests and commitments of today’s scholars, the program has introduced several innovations to the 2014-2015 program, including: Fulbright Flex Awards, Fulbright Postdoctoral/Early Career Awards, Salary Stipend Supplements, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language Awards.
The application deadline for most awards is August 1, 2013. U.S. citizenship is required. For other eligibility requirements and detailed award descriptions visit our website at http://www.cies.org/us_scholars/us_awards/ or contact us at email@example.com.
Here's the announcement. Excerpt: "Eurasia Group is seeking an experienced and motivated China analyst. The ideal candidate must have a strong understanding of elite politics, governance, and political decision-making in China. In this role, you will assess leadership dynamics and policymaking, and forecast the resulting political risks."
This is only indirectly related to Chinese law, but in this job climate, I'm going to go a bit further afield in posting relevant help-wanteds on the assumption that readers are also looking at a wider range of possibilities.
