Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center -- Asia Health Policy Postdoctoral Fellowship

Funding Agency:
Stanford University
The Asia Health Policy Program at the Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC) promotes comparative understanding of health and health policy in the Asia-Pacific region. From its inception, the program has been committed to fostering the next generation of Asia health policy researchers. Each year the program offers a postdoctoral fellowship position to a recent doctoral graduate.
The postdoctoral fellow participates in the program while undertaking original research on contemporary health or healthcare policy of high relevance to low- and middle-income countries in the Asia-Pacific region. We welcome fellowship applications by candidates from a variety of disciplines, such as public policy, public health, economics, demography, sociology, political science, anthropology, law, health services research, and related fields. Applicants from low-income or lower-middle-income countries in the Asia-Pacific receive priority, all else equal.
Appointments begin in the fall quarter of the academic year. The fellowships are limited to recent PhDs: applicants cannot be more than three years past the awarding of their doctoral degree when the fellowship starts. They must have degree conferral and approval no later than July 31 prior to the fellowship start date (that is, no later than July 31, 2019 for 2019-20 fellowships starting in fall 2019).
Postdoctoral fellows are required to be in residence for the duration of the appointment and to take part in program activities throughout the academic year. Fellows are also required to present their research findings in Center seminars and to participate in the Center’s publication program. The postdoctoral fellowship is a 10-month appointment with a salary rate of $52,000, or commensurate with Stanford policy, plus $2,000 for research expenses.
