The Paul and Marcia Wythes Center on Contemporary China offers a postdoctoral research program dedicated to promoting the interdisciplinary study and teaching of contemporary China in the social sciences. Each year the Center selects a postdoctoral research associate, who is appointed for a one-year term to pursue research and publish at the University. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be joined by the Peking-Princeton Postdoctoral Program (PPPP) Research Associate. Each year, PPPP, FPPP, and CPPP Postdocs will be selected from highly-qualified, early-career researchers in studies of contemporary China so that they are positioned to become leaders in their respective academic fields.
Meeting regularly for informal and formal discussion, seminars, lectures, and reading groups, the fellows pursue new knowledge within and across disciplines and foster intellectual exchange among the University's undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty.
