IIAS-ISEAS Postdoctoral Fellowship

Applications are invited for International Institute for Asian Studies—Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (IIAS-ISEAS) Postdoctoral Fellowships for commencement after September 2011. These fellowships are part of collaboration between IIAS and the Nalanda-Sriwijaya Centre at ISEAS, Singapore.

The positions are intended for outstanding recent doctoral graduates (within 6 years of receiving Ph.D. degree) from around the world, to work on an important piece of research in the social sciences or humanities. The proposed project should relate to the ways in which Asian polities and societies have interacted over time through religious, cultural, and economic exchanges and diasporic networks. The theme for the 2011-2012 year is intra-Asian interactions during the colonial period (16th – 20th centuries). Approaches that focus on interactions between disciplines, social practices, and regions are encouraged.


  1. The fellowship will be tenable for a maximum period of 12 months, with a maximum of 6 months attached to the IIAS office in Leiden and a maximum of 6 months at the ISEAS office in Singapore.
  2. Fieldwork can be done in Europe and Asia.
  3. An all-inclusive and fixed monthly allowance (S$ 6,000 in Singapore and € 2,000 in the Netherlands) will be provided.
  4. Support for research (office facilities, library access, networks, etc.) will be provided.
  5. Applicants must have fulfilled all requirements of the PhD. If you are a PhD candidate at the point of application, you may also apply provided that you are confirmed for graduation between April and September 2011. A letter from your university will be required to confirm your graduation before your proposed start date.
  6. The fellow is expected to complete a research paper on the proposed topic and give public lectures at Leiden and Singapore. In addition, the fellow may be required to help IIAS and ISEAS to organize a conference on the proposed topic. 

Proposals should clearly explain how research/fieldwork in Asia would benefit the overall project.
