CTS Visiting Fellowship

Starting in 2022, the Center for Taiwan Studies at UCSB will welcome applications from scholars in any discipline of the humanities and social sciences working in the Taiwan Studies field, broadly conceived, to spend a period of three to twelve months as a Visiting Fellow of the Center. Visiting Fellows will be provided with office space and UCSB library privileges in addition to help with visa procedures via OISS. During their stay, Visiting Fellows will be invited to present a seminar on their work to the CTS community. The fellowship does not carry a stipend and the fellow is responsible for their own health insurance and for finding housing in Santa Barbara. Ideally, a contact is established with a UCSB faculty member whose work relates to or overlaps with that of the applicant.

The Center welcomes applications from university faculty and qualified independent scholars. In exceptional cases the Center will also consider applications from ABD graduate students.

Applicants provide (a) a well-defined description of a research project of no more than one page that explains why the Center is a suitable place to pursue it, specifies the proposed dates of the applicant’s stay, and provides the sources of financial support during the visit; (b) a curriculum vitae together with the names and addresses of two references. Ideally, applicants will include a letter of support from a UCSB faculty member whose expertise best represents the applicant’s discipline and/or research project.

Please send all materials in a singular PDF to eastasian-taiwanstudies@ucsb.edu.
