Ricci Research Fellowship

Research Fellowship at the Ricci Institute of the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim

The Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim invites applications for the fulltime position of Ricci Research Fellow in residence for the spring semester of 2008-09 academic year (January 20 through May 31, 2009), with the option to renew for the 2009-2010 academic year (June 1, 2009 through May 31, 2010). The position is open to individuals who have received their doctoral degrees within the past seven years. We invite research proposals in areas related to the Ricci Institute’s mission and research focus, ranging broadly from the study of Jesuit interaction with China in the late Ming and Qing periods to religious and secular cross-cultural encounters between China and the West up to and including the modern and contemporary periods, especially in the subject areas of history, social history, education, and Christianity in China. We are particularly interested in projects with an interdisciplinary approach and which offer a balance of Chinese and Western perspectives on the proposed subject matter. Proposed projects may utilize the archival resources of the USF Ricci Institute and/or resources elsewhere; for further information on Institute resources visit our website at http://www.ricci.usfca.edu.

The recipient of the Ricci Research Fellowship is expected to (1) pursue publication of their research in scholarly journals or as a book publication and to credit to the Ricci Institute at the USF Center for the Pacific Rim accordingly during the fellowship period, (2) participate in the Institute’s activities as requested and present their research at a conference is such an opportunity arises, and (3) possibly assist with the production of the Ricci Institute’s short e-newsletter once a semester, depending on background.
