We seek to hire a Newman Post-Doctoral Fellow with an abiding interest in multi-disciplinary work focused on China’s growing influence around the world. Scholars researching U.S.-China relations and China’s evolving role in the international order will also receive strong consideration. In addition to facilitating the fellow’s research agenda, this position will provide the fellow with an opportunity to engage and collaborate with senior faculty members of the Institute for U.S.-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma, present research through the Institute’s speaker series, and teach one interdisciplinary course on China in a comparative or global context in the Department of International and Area Studies (IAS) per year.  

Fields of specialization might include (but are not limited to) political science, international relations, China Studies, economics, political economy, security studies, public policy, history, sociology, and geography. Chinese language and quantitative research skills are preferred.

We will accept applications from those who have earned a Ph.D. (or those who expect to earn their doctorate degree before August 2023). Applicants must submit a cover letter, vita, 500-word description of a proposed course, a single-authored writing sample, 1,000-word description of a research project, and three recommendation letters by April 30, 2023 for full consideration. The Newman Post-Doc Fellowship will commence on August 1, 2023 and is renewable through July 31, 2025 pending on annual evaluations. The salary will be $50,000 per year and the Institute will provide fringe benefits. In addition, the Institute will also make funds available to support the fellow’s participation in research conferences.

The Institute for US-China Issues at the University of Oklahoma College of International Studies was established in 2006 with the generous financial support of Harold J. & Ruth Newman. It seeks to establish national distinctiveness and preeminence in enhancing the understanding and management of U.S.-China relations by simultaneously addressing two sets of interrelated issue clusters—the security, technology, economic, environmental, political, and public health (STEEPP) issues; and the instrumental role culture plays in shaping how the two nations perceive and engage each other. Additional information about the Institute’s activities may be found at,instrumental%20role%20culture%20plays%20in.
