The Boston University Global Development Policy (GDP) Center is seeking pre- and post-doctoral fellows from a range of disciplinary backgrounds to join its Global China Fellows Program. We are particularly interested in working with conservation biologists and young scholars with spatial analysis skills to support our work on examining the impacts of China's overseas finance on biodiversity, indigenous people's lands, and other social and environmental endpoints. Learn more about the Global China Fellows Program here, and follow the application instructions here.
Interested applicants should send the following to Dr. Cecilia Springer (email@example.com) by December 16, 2022:
- A cover letter that demonstrates interest and experience in GCI-related research.
- A current curriculum vitae.
- Contact information for two references.
- For International candidates: International candidates will need express approval from their sponsoring institution stating that the potential fellow is allowed to earn income from another institution. This is especially important for international students with J-1 visas. Note: If you do not currently have a valid US scholar visa, certain research positions at BU qualify for immigration sponsorship. Prospective scholars should first establish their potential affiliation with the GDP Center as a pre- or post-doctoral fellow and clarify the terms of their appointment. BU’s International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) will work with the prospective scholar and the GDP Center to evaluate which immigration classification is most appropriate. The ISSO will consider various factors such as the appointment/affiliation terms, the scholar’s educational achievements, and US immigration history.
