6-7 Month Field Research Opportunity in Tanzania or Indonesia for PhD students; Includes Stipend, Expenses, and Time for Your Own Research
Talented ethnographic predoctoral researchers wanted to conduct case studies of health information and social action interventions in Tanzania and Indonesia. The research project is being conducted by scholars and practitioners at the Ash Center of the Harvard Kennedy School and the Results for Development Institute in Washington, D.C. Each scholar will be expected to live among and closely observe three rural communities in one of the two countries for 6-7 months to document the social and political processes of informational intervention, dissemination, reception, social action, and response. These case studies will be paired with separate quantitative survey studies of a larger group of communities. This project is ideal for doctoral students interested in doing field work and write dissertations in Tanzania or Indonesia. Scholars will also have time in the field to pursue their own research. We will provide travel, a stipend of $13,000, and language training as needed. Strong references are a must and prior field research experience a strong plus.
