Developing Asia Health Policy Fellowship

Shorenstein APARC and APO collaborative fellowship program

The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, Stanford University (Shorenstein APARC) and the Asia Pacific Observatory on Health Systems and Policy (APO) are pleased to announce their collaborative Developing Asia Health Policy Fellowship.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will participate in the Stanford Asia Health Policy Programwhile undertaking original research on contemporary health or healthcare policy of high relevance to countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The Fellow will benefit from the APO network of researchers and research institutions throughout the Asia Pacific region, including contacts with governments, to facilitate access to data and needed references for their research.

The Fellow will be required to present research findings in a Stanford seminar and complete two publishable quality papers, one technical paper for submission to a peer-reviewed professional journal, and one policy-relevant paper for publication by the APO. The Fellow may participate in other activities at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and elsewhere at Stanford, and will have opportunities to participate in APO supported events in the Asia-Pacific region as appropriate and depending upon the availability of travel funding.

We welcome applications from recent PhDs (degree conferred within the past 3 years – 2012, 2013, 2014 – or to be conferred by August 2015) who are nationals of countries in the Asia-Pacific region; applicants from low- and middle-income countries are preferred. Applicants are encouraged from a variety of disciplines, such as public health, demography, sociology, political science, economics, anthropology, public policy, law, health services research and related fields.

The Fellowship carries a stipend that is commensurate with Stanford policy, round-trip airfare, modest relocation allowance, and research expenses. The Fellow will be expected to be in residence at Stanford for 9 to 12 months, beginning September 2015.

Applicants should submit electronically a cover letter, a curriculum vitae (that shows nationality), and a short research statement (not to exceed six double-spaced pages) that describes the research to be undertaken—the topic, methodology, contribution to the literature, and policy relevance—for the two research products. Applicants should also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be mailed directly to Shorenstein APARC. Materials must be submitted by January 15, 2015.
