The aim of the Luce Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship—while in residence at the Ricci Institute— is to offer recipients the unique opportunity to participate in and present their research at weekly seminars that focus on archival, historiographical, and methodological issues relevant to different areas of East Asia. These will be attended by both Luce Research and Ricci Doctoral Fellowship recipients as well as by our regular cohort of distinguished senior scholars who come to the Ricci Institute every summer to conduct their own research and to present their work in progress.
The Ricci Institute will make available to these scholars our extensive bibliographical and archival resources, manuscript, printed, and digital, as well as our expertise in the use of these unique collections.
As stated above, this fellowship is open to post-doctoral level applicants, including Junior Faculty members (i.e. within five years of having received the PhD). We invite research proposals primarily based on the archival collections at the Ricci Institute in preparation for research publications. 
Topics of enquiry may include Chinese-Western cultural history, history of Christianity in China, comparative studies of Christianity and cultures in China, Japan, and Korea, etc.
This appointment is for a period of three months with a monthly stipend up to $4,500/month. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens (or Legal Permanent Residents o the U.S.) will need to contact the Ricci Institute well in advance for information regarding proof of English proficiency, visa, and health insurance requirements.
