Postdoctoral Longitudinal Fellowships
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is pleased to announce a call for Postdoctoral Longitudinal Fellowships at CLOSER as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund.
The Longitudinal Studies Fellowships are designed to provide Fellows with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of UK and international longitudinal studies and their respective environments, and to develop an understanding of the issues and opportunities involved in research that looks across and between studies in different countries within a development context. Longitudinal Studies Fellows will spend time at one or more UK CLOSER studies, as appropriate to their fellowship, and at CLOSER to build a well-networked cohort of fellows. Fellows will also be expected to spend time with relevant overseas studies and/or stakeholders.
