of Fellows in the Liberal Arts invites applications for Junior
Fellowships in social sciences and the humanities. These
postdoctoral fellowships aim at fostering the academic careers of

community. About the Society and Junior Fellowships: The Society of
Fellows in the Liberal Arts at SUSTech is dedicated to stimulating
innovative interdisciplinary research in the humanities and social
sciences, offering opportunities for scholars of the highest
caliber to develop their professional careers. The Society will

appointment beginning in September 2019. Fellowships are awarded to
recent Ph.D. recipients in the humanities and social sciences who
have demonstrated intellectual excellence and the potential for
outstanding academic achievement. Junior Fellows are expected to
devote their time to productive scholarship, focusing on publishing
their dissertation research, undertaking their proposed project,
and engaging in other original work that will further their
academic careers. The fellowships also carry with them a teaching
responsibility of three two-hour-per-week courses over the two-year
period. The Society aims to foster teaching excellence in the
humanities and social sciences. Junior Fellows are required to be
in residence during the fall and spring academic terms, and to
attend all of the Society's activities. They are also encouraged to
