As part of the university's comprehensive vaccination program, all Cornell employees are required to have and provide proof of an FDA-or WHO-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine and booster or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption, regardless of their role and work location.

New hires are required to provide documentation showing full vaccination status (that is, completion of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) before their first day of work. If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

Transnational Experience in Postnational Asia. The Department of Asian Studies at Cornell University invites applications for the Sanford H. Taylor Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. It seeks a scholar whose research and publications investigate the migration of peoples and technologies across Asia, especially those whose work illuminates migrant experiences invisible to projects that take the nation as their frame of reference. We anticipate the selection of a scholar who focuses on contested or shared regions (such as Hong Kong, Okinawa, or Kashmir), cultural practices that cross political, ethnic and linguistic borders (visual culture, texts in translation, the Chinese character), and non-national histories of movement and affiliation (like Uyghur, Tibetan, or Rohingya). The geographic focus of research in Asia is open; an ideal candidate will have multiple research languages. All candidates must have been awarded their Ph.D. in 2018, 2019, or expect it to be conferred no later than August 1st, 2020.

Taylor Fellows are appointed for two years and are expected to teach three courses during that time, one course each in the first three semesters, with the last semester completely free for research and writing. The successful candidate would also be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the department. Fellows will be provided with an annual stipend of $60,000, full benefits, and a research account of $3,000. Interested applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a dissertation abstract, three letters of recommendation, two sample course syllabi, one for a graduate semester-long seminar and one for an undergraduate semester-long course in their area of expertise, and a writing sample of approximately 20-25 pages. All materials should be submitted online to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15172. Applications received by December 6, 2019 will get first consideration. Cornell University is committed to the development of a campus climate that supports equity and diversity.


Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations.
