The object of this fully funded  studentship is to support PhD work  
in the history of science and technology in modern East Asia. Could I  
ask colleagues to post this announcement to any e-lists that they  
think might be useful for publicising this opportunity, and otherwise  
to circulate it as they see fit?

Thanks!

Director, NRI


=========================================================
Studentship in the History of East Asian Science and Technology

The Trustees of the Needham Research Institute Cambridge ("the  
Trustees") invite applications from suitably qualified candidates for  
a Studentship in the History of East Asian Science and Technology, to  
be held in the University of Cambridge.

The purpose of the Studentship is to support students who have been  
admitted to work for a PhD degree in the University of Cambridge in  
the areas of study specified below. In the case of a student admitted  
directly to work for the PhD degree, the award shall be for three  
years at maximum.  In appropriate cases, where the student is  
initially admitted to work for an MPhil preparatory to beginning work  
for a PhD, the Trustees may be prepared to consider making the award  
for up to four years at maximum. In all cases the continuation of the  
award from year to year will be conditional on the student making  
satisfactory progress in the view of the Trustees. The successful  
candidate will be given working space in the Needham Research  
Institute (www.nri.org.uk), which has unparalleled research  
facilities in the fields of the history of science, technology and  
medicine in East Asia.  The Studentship is associated with Darwin  
College, and the successful award holder will normally be admitted to  
full membership of the College for the tenure of the Studentship.

The amount of the Studentship will consist of payment of university  
fees and college dues for the candidate, plus an amount for  
maintenance.  Where appropriate, fees will be paid at the rate for  
non-EU students.

Priority in making awards of Studentships will be given to to  
applicants who propose to carry out research in the following areas,  
which are given in order of priority:
(1)  The history of science and technology in modern Korea

(2)  The history of science and technology in modern Japan

(3)  The history of science and technology in modern China, or the  
history of modern medicine in any of the above three countries

The word ‘modern’ here designates the period after 1850, and  
‘science’ is taken to include mathematics, whether pure or applied.  
Strong preference will be given to projects centring on the 20th  
century or later. Any holder of a Studentship who wishes to make a  
substantive change in the topic of his or her research after taking  
up the Studentship must first obtain the agreement of the Trustees,  
failing which the Studentship may be withdrawn.

Given the subjects covered by the award, the normal expectation will  
be that applicants will seek admission to the Department of History  
and Philosophy of Science of the University of Cambridge (http:// 
www.hps.cam.ac.uk/).

Applications for this award will be treated separately from  
applications for admission to the University of Cambridge.   
Candidates should therefore;

(a) Apply as soon as possible for admission to the University of  
Cambridge in the normal way. For guidance, see the University website  
at http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/admissions/;  please  
address all queries about the University admission process to the  
appropriate part of the University, not to the Needham Research  
Institute.  Candidates may however mention in their application that  
they are applying for this Studentship.  Candidates should normally  
give Darwin College as their first choice of college.  Candidates  
should note carefully the University's requirements in regard to  
English language ability: see http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/univ/ 
gsprospectus/applying/entry.html#english.

(b) Apply simultaneously to the Needham Research Institute for the  
Studentship.  Candidates should send a full curriculum vitae, a  
detailed research proposal, and the name of two academic referees who  
are prepared to report in confidence on the candidate's work.   In  
most cases the best thing will be for the candidate to send the  
Needham Research Institute a hard printed copy of their University  
application, together with any further material necessary to give a  
clear impression of the research they intend to carry out.   
Candidates should ensure that they produce evidence that they possess  
the language skills required for the purpose of their research.

All applications will be carefully considered. No announcement or  
notification of award of the Studentship will be made before  
University admission procedures have been completed and candidates  
have been told whether they have been given a place at Cambridge.   
The Trustees reserve the right to make no award if in their opinion  
no suitable candidate of sufficient merit applies.

All enquiries and applications should be addressed to:
