Postdoctoral Research Associate - The Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program (CWP)  
Woodrow Wilson School - 285  
Position Summary
Princeton University and Harvard University jointly founded the fellowship program for the advanced study of China's international relations, the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program (CWP), in 2005. The program's co-directors are Thomas J. Christensen of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Alastair Iain Johnston of Harvard's Government Department. The China and the World Program supports research that integrates theoretical innovations in the field of international relations with the rigorous study of China's interactions with countries, regions, institutions, and non-state actors.
In 2012-2013, the program will award several one-year "postdoctoral research associate" positions. Preference will be given to scholars who have defended their dissertations in the past three years and are currently working on revising their Ph.D. thesis for publication as a book or who are just beginning a second major project. Depending on their areas of interest, fellows will reside at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School or Harvard University's Center for Government and International Studies and are expected to participate actively in the intellectual life of these institutions.
