The Gosling-Lim Postdoctoral Fellowship in Southeast Asian Studies 2022 is currently accepting applications.
This fellowship aims to improve Southeast Asian Studies competency among Southeast Asian citizens working in Southeast Asia and at Southeast Asian institutions.
Its purpose is to allow such academics to focus on publishing their dissertation findings and/or beginning new post-dissertation research without the distractions of teaching, consulting, or administrative responsibilities, as well as the chance to broaden their intellectual networks and skills.
Fellowship grantees are expected to progress their careers in Southeast Asia while also helping to promote the discipline of Southeast Asian Studies in the area.
Gosling-Lim Postdoctoral Fellowship Requirements
- Open to Southeast Asian individuals of single nationality with a Ph.D. or equivalent degree who are — or will be — in the academic profession in Southeast Asia and whose research focuses on Southeast Asia. The degree must have been earned between one and three years before the commencement of the program. Independent academics who plan to work for an institution in the future are encouraged to apply.
- Dual nationals are eligible to apply if they agree to stay in Southeast Asia for at least two years after the fellowship ends to actively contribute to and advance the field of Southeast Asian Studies without leaving the area for employment abroad.
- At the time of application, applicants must have a Ph.D. Candidates who are pursuing a doctorate are not eligible to apply.
- It is not necessary to be a member of the AAS.
- Applicants must not have obtained a research and writing fellowship focusing on Southeast Asia in the previous three years.
- A previous Gosling-Lim Postdoctoral Fellow is not eligible to apply.
Application for Gosling-Lim Postdoctoral Fellowship
Your application should include:
- A cover letter outlining:
- how the fellowship will be used;
- how it will contribute to the applicant’s professional development and academic career;
- how this will contribute to the field of Southeast Asian studies in general and within Southeast Asia specifically. The letter should also attest that the applicant will not be holding another fellowship concurrently.
- Citizenship documentation, such as a valid passport from your native country.
- The receipt of a Ph.D. degree must be documented.
- A comprehensive curriculum vitae.
- As is usual of many academic proposals and grant applications, a proposal on the study is to be conducted or written up, including a budget (with any matching funds specified) and dissemination plans.
- 1-2 writing examples, such as a dissertation chapter, a working paper, or an article that has been submitted or published.
- A statement from the applicant describing why the prospective host institution was chosen, as well as the resources available there that would benefit the study (e.g. unique library or museum resources, presence of scholarly research collaborators, availability of courses and seminars that the applicant may attend without charge). Applicants who desire to connect with the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor will be given preference, although this is not a requirement. Although the host university might be located anywhere in the world, it must be the most suited for the planned study.
- By April 1, 2022, each candidate must separately request that the following supporting materials be submitted to [email protected]:
- Two letters of reference from referees who are experts in the applicant’s area of study.
- A letter of support from the intended host institution describing the (financial or non-financial) assistance it would give to the applicant (e.g. office space, library and computer access, administrative staff support, ability to audit graduate courses and attend seminars). (Note 1: If the host school demands an overhead payment for this role, the amount will be taken from the fellowship amount if authorized by the fellowship awarding committee.) Note 2: The candidate is invited to offer paid or unpaid seminars and guest lectures at the host school, but not to teach or team-teach a course.)
- A letter of support from the applicant’s home institution granting leave for the term of the fellowship (noting any institutional matching funds if available) and describing how the fellowship would benefit the university’s area of Southeast Asian Studies. Independent researchers should explain why they do not have an institutional affiliation and how they intend to get one once the fellowship ends.
