The Luce Research fellowship is open to post-doctoral level applicants, including Junior Faculty members (i.e. within five years of having received the PhD). We invite research proposals primarily based on the archival collections at the Ricci Institute in preparation for research publications. Topics of enquiry may include Chinese-Western cultural history, history of Christianity in China, comparative studies of Christianity and cultures in China, Japan, and Korea, etc.
The aim of the fellowship is to offer recipients the unique opportunity to conduct research and to prepare manuscripts for publication that focus on archival, historiographical, and methodological issues that are relevant to different areas of Christianity and cultures in East Asia. Recipients are also expected to present their work and actively participate in all regularly organized research seminars at the Ricci Institute.
The appointment is for a period of three months with a monthly stipend up to $4,500/month. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens or Legal Permanent Residents will need to contact the Ricci Institute well in advance for information regarding proof of English proficiency, visa, and health insurance requirements.
