The East Asian Languages and Cultures and Performing Arts Departments at Washington University in St. Louis seek to fill a postdoctoral appointment to begin in the fall semester of the 2022-23 academic year in the field of Sinophone performance cultures or popular cultures, including the Republic of China in Taiwan, People’s Republic of China, and the Chinese diaspora. We are particularly interested in scholars who have training in drama, dance, or film. Candidates who can teach practice skills (e.g., sheng, dan, jing, and chou roles in Beijing opera, Tai Chi or other martial arts, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply. The responsibilities of this appointment include teaching a two-semester first-year seminar in our Ampersand program (which includes a trip to Taiwan), as well as a third course related to the candidate’s research. Fellows are expected to participate fully in the intellectual lives of the two departments as appropriate to their research interests. They are also expected to conduct their own scholarly research with mentoring available from faculty in both departments.
