Columbia University Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translation, 2002-2003

The East Asian Institute has established this fellowship with the
purpose of producing first-rate English translations of scholarship in
East Asian languages in any field (excluding fiction). The Fellow is
obligated to spend half time translating, checking, and editing in order
to submit a completed manuscript by the end of the year, which the
Institute will place with a publisher. The other half of the time is
devoted to the Fellow's own research or writing. The stipend is $35,000.
The grant begins September 2002 and the Ph.D. must be in hand by July 1,

Candidates should send a proposal for a translated volume (a reader, a
single text, etc.) that can be completed within the grant period; a
sample translation from the project of at least ten manuscript pages in
length; a curriculum vitae; and two recommendations, each including
comments on language, translation, and writing skills.
