The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University invites applications for postdoctoral associate and postgraduate associate positions in the CEAS Digital Tokugawa Lab. The appointment period for both positions is from July 1st, 2019 – June 30th, 2020. 

The Digital Tokugawa Lab is a working group of one faculty member (Fabian Drixler) and up to three postdoctoral or postgraduate associates who will collaborate on one or more shared projects for one year. The highest priority in 2019/20 will be the creation of a series of digital maps for Tokugawa Japan’s territorial structure, based in part on the results of text mining. The maps are likely to be widely used by historians and other scholars, as they address a longstanding need: at present, the territories of Tokugawa Japan have been fully mapped for 1664 and ca. 1868 only, and even for those two years, there is considerable scope for improvement.
