New Job Listing: Duke-DKU Global Fellows Program

Applications accepted on a rolling basis up to December 15, 2021, by 5pm (EST). Review of applications will begin on November 1st.

The Duke-DKU Global Fellows Program is designed to offer an international experience to post-doctoral scholars or advanced doctoral students whose records demonstrate excellence in teaching and an interest in pursuing an academic career. Duke-DKU Global Fellows teach at Duke Kunshan University (DKU) for the Undergraduate Program.

Most courses at DKU are taught in 7-week terms; a few courses are taught over a semester. Contact hours for all classes are the same; in particular, the number of contact hours for a 7-week course is the same as a 14-week course. Courses might include sections of common courses, distinct elective courses, lab sections or recitations. Assignment of classes will be determined by Fellow specific expertise and by DKU teaching needs.

The Fellowship is contingent upon successful receipt of the appropriate type of Chinese visa. Fellows may teach for a 7-week term up to a full academic year based on DKU teaching needs and the Fellow’s availability and his/her related education and experience required for immigration purposes.

The award carries a $13,000 stipend ($17,000 for fellows who have completed their PhD) for two courses, a $1,500 allowance for costs related to research or course preparation, travel costs to/from China, health insurance, and a housing allowance.

Post-doctoral fellows or advanced doctoral students from all disciplines are invited to apply.

HR forces the College to list all jobs with “physical demands” that have bus drivers or security officers in mind, not a teaching postdoc position such as this. Pursuant to the ADA, Moravian College will provide reasonable accommodation(s) (see more in the ad).

Opportunity: 2 Courses at Wesleyan next academic year

During Academic Year 2021-22, the Wesleyan philosophy department would like to fill two “per-course” (i.e., single course) teaching slots in Asian philosophy. This most likely will be one course in the fall of 2021 and one course in the spring of 2022, though we have some flexibility. We probably want to offer “Classical Chinese philosophy” in the fall and are wide open in the spring, but this  too could be negotiated.
Anyone who is interested should send me a cover letter describing what you would like to teach and something about your teaching experience, as well as a CV.
There is no hard deadline, but anyone who contacts me by February 15 is assured full consideration.
