The Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies at Suffolk University Boston welcomes applications from scholars who wish to be considered for a short term appointment as a Rosenberg Institute Scholar.
This nonresidential appointment is for scholars who wish to complete a research and writing topic of contemporary or current policy relevance that focuses on Greater China, Southeast Asia or South Asia. We especially encourage applicants who are willing to disseminate their scholarship to a broad audience, or engage in public scholarship across various platforms.
The program supports a six month appointment on a nonresidential basis, as well as a brief residential component of a few days at Suffolk University's campus in downtown Boston, during which time the Scholar will be asked to present a public seminar and interact with Suffolk University faculty and students. The Rosenberg Institute Scholar will be expected to complete an English language article or white paper that will be published on the Rosenberg Institute website, and become part of the institute's continuing series of white papers. We expect that a first draft of the paper will be submitted before the end of the appointment; and that the Scholar maintain active communication with the Institute Director during the entirety of the appointment. The honorarium for this work, paid at the completion of the appointment is $7,500.
Applications are due no later than November 1, 2019.

Located right in the heart of downtown Boston, Suffolk University gives its students unparalleled access to the city and all it offers.Our college green is the Boston Common. We are steps from dozens of historic sites like the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, and the Massachusetts State House. We have no real boundaries to our campus' Boston and Suffolk blend together. That means our students have incredible access to a wealth of opportunities, whether it's museums and restaurants or internships and co-ops. At the same time, we also take pride in being a personal, student-centered school, where faculty and administrators know students by name. We take the time to recognize each student's promise, figure out what makes him or her tick, and build important mentoring relationships.As we have done since our founding, we strive for one thing at Suffolk: give students the tools they need to be successful, smart, and satisfied at whatever they choose to do.
