Postdoctoral Fellow at Australian National University

Australian National University is offering postdoctoral fellowship position in cultural studies. Potential candidates should apply before October 21, 2018.

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region.

The School of Culture, History and Language is one of four Schools within CAP and one of the world's leading public policy schools, and houses the ANU Malaysia Institute, which was established in 2016 seeking to foster an interest in Malaysia and to act as a key coordination point for Malaysia-related activities across campus.

CAP is looking to build on its expertise in Malaysian studies, in order to contribute to the already world-leading Southeast Asian studies program and research.

We are looking for a teamwork-oriented scholar who has the ability to contribute to its undergraduate courses in the Bachelor of Asian Studies. This could involve teaching into the School's introductory Asian studies courses, or more in-depth Southeast Asia related contextual courses. The position is not for teaching into the School's language program, which is predominantly a Bahasa Indonesia program.

The successful applicant will build collaborative programs with institutions in Malaysia, seek various forms of funding, and engage with the ANU and Canberra-based Malaysian Studies community in creating and facilitating events and outreach programs.

The ideal applicant has recently completed a PhD (or recently submitted) and has evidence of building a track record of quality publications with a focus on contemporary issues in Malaysia. The ideal applicant would have a background in gender studies, cultural studies, anthropology, religious studies (particularly contemporary Islam) or history and would be able to discuss debates around the role of contemporary Malaysia. The ideal applicant speaks and reads Malay, but scholars whose primary research does not include Malay-language texts or fieldwork sites will be considered.
