he Soon-Young Kim Award in the History of East Asian Science and Technology

Needham Research Institute, Cambridge

  The Trustees of the Needham Research Institute invite applications from suitably qualified candidates for a Soon-Young Kim Award in the History of East Asian Science and Technology, to be held in the University of Cambridge. The Award will be tenable from October 2013.

  

  The Award may be held in either of two modes:

  

  (a)   A one-year post-doctoral research fellowship.

  (b)  The first year of a studentship to support research for the degree of PhD, with the potential for renewal year by year thereafter.

  

  Applicants must specify clearly under which mode they wish to hold the Award when making their application. Applications should be made by email, using the application form available from the Institute Administrator (admin@nri.org.uk). Closing date is January 31st 2013. (Please note that during the Christmas holiday period there will be a delay in sending the application form).

  

  Priority in making awards will be given to applicants who propose to carry out research in the following areas, which are given in order of priority:

  

  (1) The history of science and technology in modern Korea

  

  (2) The history of science and technology in modern Japan

  

  (3) The history of science and technology in modern China, or the history of modern medicine in any of the above three countries.

  

  The word ‘modern’ here designates the period after 1850, and ‘science’ is taken to include mathematics, whether pure or applied. Strong preference will be given to projects centering on the 20th century or later.

  

  Post-doctoral research fellowship mode:

  

  If the Award is to be held under this mode, the applicant must hold the degree of PhD in a relevant area of research. The award will consist of a stipend to meet the expenses of living in Cambridge, where the Award holder will be expected to reside during tenure of the award. The Award holder will be given office space in the Needham Research Institute, and will be expected to participate fully in the academic life of the Institute.

  

  Candidates should send the completed application form with a full curriculum vitae, a detailed research proposal, and the name of two academic referees who are prepared to report in confidence on the candidate's work.
