In doing so, we are particularly looking for researchers focusing on the three IIAS clusters ‘Asian Cities’, ‘Asian Heritages’ and ‘Global Asia’. However some positions will be reserved for outstanding projects in any area outside of those listed. Applications that link to more than one field are also welcome.
