Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"The Population Studies and Training Center (PSTC) at Brown University will support several short-term visiting scholars during the 2011-2012 academic year. Positions are competitive and open to scholars from Africa working on population issues from any disciplinary perspective (e.g., anthropology, economics, education, geography, public health, and sociology). Duration of residence at Brown is variable, depending on the applicant’s proposed scope. Preference will be given to stays of one to three months.
These are not salaried positions, but costs of travel to and from Providence, as well as costs of residency (meals and accommodation) will be provided. Applicants may also request modest funds for research expenses. Applicants should aim to complete some sort of major scholarly activity during the residency, such as a book, an article(s), or a research grant proposal. In addition, applicants should demonstrate how the PSTC and its faculty will provide a particularly productive environment in which to advance the applicant’s research agenda. Each applicant should identify in advance a primary mentor from among the PSTC faculty [see the PTSC faculty page] and communicate with that person prior to submitting the application, identifying that person and explaining his/her relevance to the project in the application itself."
