In order to heighten the standard of research in the humanities and social sciences, to promote interdisciplinary academic integration as well as innovative, outstanding humanities and social sciences research, and to increase the value and influence of these fields of study, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), in accordance with Article 8 of NCKU's organizational regulations, has established the NCKU Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS).

CHASS's responsibilities include:

1 The integration of domestic and international resources and research capacities with those of NCKU's relevant departments and centers.

2 The strengthening of regionally focused research themes, and the development of researches focused on the relationship between Taiwan and globalization.

3 The establishment of highly active, thematic research groups, and the training of young scholars in the humanities and social sciences.

The “NCKU: 90 and beyond” initiative is recruiting 90 scholars from postdoctoral researchers to professors with doctoral degrees. Experience is not required for new colleagues; the most important qualification is a passion for research and teaching. Our center helps the applicants to apply for the fellowships.
