Stanford Next Asia Policy Lab Invites Fall 2024 Applications for “Next Asia Policy Visiting Fellow”
Three visiting scholar positions are available to researchers from Asia, with one specifically dedicated to research on the Philippines. Submissions are due by March 1, 2023.
The Stanford Next Asia Policy Lab (SNAPL) is accepting applications for visiting fellows from the Asia-Pacific region to begin Fall Quarter of 2024. The lab seeks scholars and professionals with a PhD or a substantial record of professional achievement related to the research themes: “Talent Flows and Development,” “Nationalism and Racism,” “US-Asia Relations,” and “Democratic Crisis and Reform.” One of the three available positions will be specifically dedicated to research on the Philippines.
SNAPL is a new innovative policy lab housed at the Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center (APARC) under the leadership of Professor Gi-Wook Shin. The lab is committed to addressing Asia's emergent social, cultural, economic, and political challenges through interdisciplinary, problem-oriented, policy-relevant, and comparative studies and publications. The visiting fellows will work alongside postdoctoral fellows, affiliated Stanford faculty, and students to conduct research on one or more of four themes listed above. Information about how to apply is available here, and the deadline to apply for Fall 2024 Quarter admission is March 1, 2024.
The appointment is for one academic year.
Each visiting fellow will be offered $30,000 as a supplementary stipend. Visiting fellows are required to be in residence at the Center for the duration of the appointment and are expected to participate in Center and Lab activities throughout the academic year. The visiting fellows will participate in the annual SNAPL trip to Asia to conduct research and meet with collaborators and stakeholders. Additional privileges include access to Stanford research facilities, the opportunity to audit relevant University lecture courses without a fee (subject to permission of the instructor), and the opportunity to participate in events at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and elsewhere on campus.
