The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Fellowships

The Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures is
pleased to announce the continuation of its research fellowship
program. The Institute is an independent entity, affiliated with both the
University of East Anglia (UEA) and the School of Oriental and African
Studies (SOAS), in University of London.

Designed to strengthen academic ties with Japan studies programs in the
United States and Canada, the Institute offers two fellowships on an 
basis to scholars who have either received an advanced degree
from a North American university, or who are currently employed by a North
American academic institution or museum. Candidates should normally have
received their Ph.D. within the last five years. Any area of Japanese
culture is eligible, though some preference may be given to applications
focusing on visual culture, intellectual history, or literary studies. The
fellowships are intended to provide recipients with an opportunity to work
in a scholarly environment conducive to completing a publication project.

The maximum term of the fellowships is twelve months, beginning no
earlier than 1 July and no later than 30 December 2001. The award for a
full year will total 22,500 pounds sterling (approximately US$35,000), not
subject to income tax. Fellows will be covered by the National Health

Fellows will be expected to reside in the United Kingdom and to
participate, depending on their research interests, in the scholarly
activities and intellectual exchange of either UEA in Norwich or SOAS. 
will be expected to give at least one lecture at either place. Work areas
will be provided along with access to the libraries and resources of both
