Open Call for Applications – 2018/2019 CEAFJP Post-doctoral Fellowship
The CEAFJP seeks applications for a post-doctoral contract of ten months, from 1 November 2018 to 31 August 2019.
In discussions among economists, sociologists and political scientists in Europe and North America, theories and concepts of comparative and international political economy have only recently been applied in systematic ways to Asia and the specific institutional configurations of its key economies. At the same time, the rapid transformation of Asia’s older and newer capitalisms are posing new theoretical challenges.
This call for a post-doctoral fellowship promotes integrated approaches to the transformations of contemporary capitalisms in Asia and explore the links between the changes of capitalism at global, national and local levels on the one hand and technological, social, and political transformation on the other. Areas of particular interest include: corporate diversity and institutional change; inequalities and welfare; developmental states. Thus, we welcome applicants from Political economy, Sociology, History, Law and we encourage research projects that focus on Asia’s experience from a comparative, historical, or global perspective.
