University of California-Berkeley
Scholars In Residence Program

We are currently not accepting applications for this position.

The BEATRICE BAIN RESEARCH GROUP (BBRG) is the University of California-Berkeley’s feminist research center, established in 1986 to support and coordinate feminist scholarship across disciplines. Among the BBRG’s activities and programs is its Scholars-in-Residence Program which hosts approximately fifteen scholars, who are competitively selected annually from a national and international pool, for a period of one academic year. Thanks to the generous support of the Chau Hoi Shuen Foundation Fund, the BBRG is able to offer a funded research residency position for a scholar from Mainland China for the 2011-2012 academic year. The funding will include: costs of roundtrip travel from China to University of California-Berkeley; visa fees; monthly salary; a research stipendium (which may be used, for example, for travel to conferences in the U.S., books, supplies, etc).  


The funded BBRG-Chau Hoi Shuen Scholar in Residence position is open to faculty from academic institutions located in Mainland China whose work is centrally on gender and women. 

The scholar selected for this position will be fully a part of the BBRG Scholars-in-Residence Program and thus will have access to all privileges accorded to all BBRG Scholars-in-Residence. These include: visiting scholar status at University of California-Berkeley; University of California-Berkeley library privileges; a library orientation session customized for the purposes of the Scholar in Residence’s research; the possibility of University of California-Berkeley student research assistants; shared office space with other BBRG Scholars in Residence and BBRG Affiliated Scholars; shared computer and internet access; a reading/writing group; and a forum for BBRG Scholars in Residence to present their scholarly or creative work to the Berkeley campus community and to the public.
