Call for Applications: Post-doctoral Fellowship (EHESS, Paris)

“Asian Capitalisms: Diversity and Institutional Change”
Call for Applications – Deadline: 31 March 2018


The CEAFJP (Centre for French-Japanese Advanced Studies in Paris) is recruiting a post-doctoral fellow for 10 months, from 1 November 2018 to 31 August 2019.

Scientific Rationale

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.

Candidates must be scholars who have submitted or will submit their PhD thesis between October 2015 and October 2018. Proficiency in either English or French is required.
