IUSSP Population, Ethics, and Human Rights are making a call for its fellowship in 2022.
The IUSSP Scientific Panel, jointly with USC IIGH, WiSER, and ISER, is issuing a global call for applications to host 3 early-career research/practitioner professionals for a 12-month period.
The Fellowship requires a full-time commitment during a 12-month residence period — Fellows will be hosted for 6 months at WiSER, Johannesburg and 6-months at ISER, Uganda (fellowship extension beyond 12-months is subject to available funding). The Fellowship Program will include support for individual and group research projects, interactive
dialogues, seminars and research/practitioner workshops that seek to unpack interdisciplinary perspectives with a particular focus on emerging challenges in low- and middle-income countries. Fellows will be supported by the IUSSP Scientific Panel and the partner institutions WiSER (South Africa), ISER (Uganda), and IIGH (United States).
- Applications will be accepted from low- and middle-income countries from different geographic regions and disciplinary expertise and supported to become a cohort of thought leaders in this emerging field, including support for multidisciplinary collaboration.
- Fellows will be hosted at WiSER and ISER, so their residential fellowship will include direct study of and engagement with contemporary issues in South Africa and Uganda, as a complement to their own studies or areas of work (even if not specifically focused on South Africa or Uganda).
- Stipend: US$27,500 over 12 months to cover all living expenses
- Travel Costs: Economy airfares from current residence to Johannesburg, between Johannesburg and Kampala, and between Kampala and Johannesburg, and home again
- Administrative Costs: Health insurance and visa costs
