The Ghent Centre for Buddhist Studies (www.cbs.ugent.be ), located at Ghent University, Belgium, is seeking candidates for postdoctoral fellowships (for those with a PhD from anywhere in the world). The Centre’s particular strengths are Indian, Chinese, and Japanese Buddhism, broadly defined. In Belgium, candidates do not apply to the university itself, but instead use the portal of the Flemish Research Foundation (FWO; http://www.fwo.be/en/fellowships-funding/). Funding is up to 3 years for postdoctoral fellows (with a renewal application possible). Administrative and teaching duties are minimal. Strong applications that are unsuccessful in obtaining FWO funding will also be reviewed by the Special Research Fund (BOF) of Ghent University proper.
The current application cycle now open with a deadline of December 1, 2021. Due to the rigor of the apploication process, we wish to stress the importance of connecting early with us. The application is much longer than many other doctoral or postdoctoral applications, but if you are interested we can potentially help navigate it more efficiently. We encourage anyone interested in applying to contact the director of the Centre, Ann Heirman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
