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 from candidates studying evidence-based health policy using a variety of disciplinary perspectives, such as public policy, public health, economics, demography, sociology, political science, anthropology, law, medicine, 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 (or no more than six years past the awarding of their M.D.) when the fellowship starts. They must have degree conferral and approval no later than June 30 prior to the fellowship start date (that is, no later than June 30, 2024 for 2024-25 fellowships starting in fall 2024).
The 2024-25 AHPP postdoctoral fellow is required to be in residence for the duration of the appointment and to present their research findings in Center seminars and to participate in the Center’s publication program. The postdoctoral fellowship is at minimum a 10-month appointment with a salary rate of $60,000, or commensurate with Stanford policy, plus $3,000 for research expenses.
Applicants should submit electronically a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and a short research statement (not to exceed six double-spaced pages) that describes the research to be undertaken during the fellowship. Applicants should also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be emailed directly to Shorenstein APARC. Materials must be submitted by December 1, 2023.
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer, and we welcome applications from diverse backgrounds that would bring additional dimensions to the university's research and teaching missions. Diversity includes, but is not limited to, culture, socioeconomic background, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical capabilities, and life experience.
