Caldwell Visiting Fellowship
This is an exciting opportunity for an early career African researcher working on the effects of global climate change on human health, well-being and populations to develop a collegial partnership with researchers at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH) and the School of Demography at the Australian National University (ANU).
In 2020, the Caldwell Fellowship will support one early career African researcher to undertake research at the ANU for a one-year period. The position will be based within the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health in the Research School of Population Health, undertaking research related to the effects of climate change (including other environmental changes such as air pollution and urbanisation) on human health. The Fellowship will fund travel to and from the ANU, and salary for a level B academic. The researcher must be affiliated with an African research institute or university and have a PhD or equivalent experience or be in the final stages of completion of a PhD.
A primary goal of this program is to establish ongoing collaboration between ANU and research institutions in Africa.
The application should provide:
- A cover letter that includes the applicant’s name and area of research interest
- A curriculum vitae
- A statement of the activities proposed to be conducted during the visit and expected outcomes
- A brief description of how the research interest reflects John C (Jack) Caldwell’s academic legacy and aligns with research at NCEPH and/or the School of Demography
- A statement on how the visit will enhance longer-term collaboration between NCEPH and/or the School of Demography and the Caldwell Fellow’s institution
- A brief statement outlining analytical capabilities (quantitative or qualitative research skills)
- A letter of support from the supervisor, including support for future collaboration with researchers from NCEPH and/or the School of Demography.
