The Asia Institute is the University of Melbourne’s key centre for studies in Asian languages and cultures. Our teaching programs include Arabic, Chinese, Indonesian and Japanese languages, as well as Asian and Islamic Studies. The Asia Institute has close links with other Schools and Faculties across the University, and our programs are strongly interdisciplinary in focus.

Launched in 2013, The Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies (CCCS) within the Asia Institute is a major initiative of the University of Melbourne. The Centre plays a vital role in promoting an Australian approach in the study of contemporary China, and serves to be a significant source of research based information on China, Chinese societies and Chinese economies in the 21st century.

In collaboration with the Director of CCCS, you will assist in the research initiatives of the Centre. You will be provided with the opportunity and mentorship to build your own research profile. In addition to publishing your own research in this area, you will collaborate in publications and be involved fully in the life of the Centre. You will also be expected to assist with the coordination of relevant symposia and research grant applications and to engage in public outreach. There is an expectation that you will be involved in some Honours/ postgraduate supervision or teaching, however this is primarily a research-only position.
